Wild Weather Weekends in May

May 5 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

Saturdays: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sundays: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Hold onto your hats, because we’re about to embark on a whirlwind adventure through the wild weather systems of Earth’s atmosphere! Get ready to uncover the secrets of the Everglades’ wildfires, learn about the profound impact of drought and understand why Florida’s aquifers rely on rain.

  • Exhibits, Shows and Demos: For the budding city planners, head to the Makerspace and let your imagination run wild constructing structures capable of withstanding storm flooding; it’s a real-world challenge that’s both fun and educational!
  • Animal Encounters: See our resident animals and learn what they do when challenging weather comes to Florida.
  • Watch an IMAX on the GIANT Screen: Arctic: Our Frozen Planet, Great Bear Rainforest, Extreme Weather, Forces of Nature and more!
  • Career Connection: Learn about meteorologists and how they predict weather.

Just for early learners (ages 0-6): Young meteorologists can discover how windstorms are born by observing hurricanes in a bowl, tornadoes in a bottle and even build structures that can brave the fiercest of storm winds.

Included with Museum admission.
