Dr. Frost said he and his wife hope the new museum will help propel Miami’s prospects as a center of science, in particular in the growing field of bio-tech, by encouraging local kids’ interest in the subject.
The Urban Environment League Board has been at odds over the museums in the park. Some in the group are against placing buildings in parks as they eat up much needed park space for the community. Board Member, Dr. Gregory Bush has been vocal with his opposition to the two museums in the park.
