We’re welcoming two new special exhibitions to our campus and members are invited for a special evening to celebrate!
Join us on Friday, October 8 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for enhanced experiences, select museum access, giveaways and more.
Discover the properties of skin across an array of organisms and examine the meaning humans have associated with skin color in Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity, a bilingual, multi-sensory exhibition having its East Coast premiere at Frost Science, presented by Baptist Health’s Miami Cancer Institute. Also opening at Frost Science is X-Ray Vision: Fish Inside Out, an exhibition from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), that features dramatic and striking X-ray prints exposing the inner workings of different species of fish, many of which are featured in our Aquarium.
In addition, members will enjoy:
- Exclusive access to all museum exhibitions and experiences from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
- A “Science of X-Rays” discussion with Frost Science resident veterinarian, Dr. Kristen Dubé.
- An animal encounter with our feathered ambassadors, Red, a red-shouldered hawk, and Ava, an American kestrel (limited engagement until 8:15 pm).
- A special screening of our Frost Planetarium laser show, Mini Cinematic Symphony at 7:15 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. (limited seating is available; seating first come, first served).
- A hands-on activity about skin and camouflage.
- Complimentary light snacks courtesy of Constellation Culinary Group (while supplies last).
- A dynamic photobooth with take-home photos available.
- Double discount at the Science Store (that’s 20% off!) until 9:00 p.m.
And when you get home, share your favorite photos and moments with us on social media at @frostscience using our hashtag #FrostScience.

Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity is presented by Baptist Health’s Miami Cancer Institute. The exhibition was created by the California Academy of Sciences and modified for travel and distributed by the Science Museum of Minnesota. The exhibition is generously supported by Susan and Nicholas Pritzker and Family.
X-Ray Vision: Fish Inside Out is organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). It was inspired by the book Ichthyo: The Architecture of Fish (Chronicle Books in association with the Smithsonian Institution, 2008) by Stephanie Comer and Deborah Klochko.

All members must have a valid membership card and show a photo ID upon entrance. Only those listed on the membership account will be permitted into the event. The museum closes to the general public at 6:00 p.m.
