$305M Science Museum Will Be Completed By The End Of This Year

Miami’s $305 million Frost Museum of Science will be completed by the end of 2016, according to the Herald.

The aquarium will be stocked with fish beginning in October, with the complex expected to be open to the public in early 2017.

The project had been struggling to pull together funding for completion, but is now fully funded thanks to a combination of loans and cuts:

  • $45 million construction grant from Miami-Dade
  • $40 million bank loan
  • $20 million in cuts to exhibits and features
