Megalodon Exhibit

By Solange Reyner

Check out fossil remains of the largest shark that ever lived at the Miami Science Museum’s Megalodon exhibit. You’ll have to hurry, though, as this exhibit ends this Sunday, September 13th.

The megalodon existed just under two million years ago and the folks who put this traveling exhibit together have fossil specimens of the 60-foot beast – mostly jaws (eight feet in height) and teeth.

There’s a 60-foot long walk-through sculpture with highlights of the evolution, biology and misconceptions regarding pre-historic sharks.

The cost: Adults $18, seniors and students with ID $16, children $13, with children under 3 free. Miami-Dade county residents receive 15% off ticket prices.

The Miami Science Museum is located at 3280 South Miami Avenue in Miami. For more info, call 305-646-4200.
