Florida is a simple state: gators, citrus, Walmart shoppers. It’s also a perennial target of hurricanes. And although Miami hasn’t been hit hard by any cleverly named storms in the past several years, it’s inevitable that one will come blowing through our backyard before too long. So what better time to learn more about Mother Nature’s offspring than during the calm before the stormy summer? Hit up the “Hurricanes” exhibit at the Miami Science Museum (3280 S. Miami Ave., Miami). Visitors can climb aboard a full-scale P-3 hurricane-hunter aircraft, sharpen survival skills with the Hurricane Preparedness game (hint: stock up on booze), and — in true three-little-pigs style — design, build, and test a model house to hold up against hurricane-force winds. And at the center of the storm, there’s the Magic Planet, an interactive display that lets guests explore the connection between climate change and hurricanes, and track any budding storms. We expect advance notice of your findings (so we can plan an epic hurricane party, of course).
