Cox Center and Aquarium nets $10M for massive expansion

by carlislewillard

The Cox Center and Aquarium has received a $10 million state appropriation for an expansion more than doubling its West Palm Beach footprint.

Lawmakers approved the funds at the request of Sen. Bobby Powell. The money, the request said, will go toward building a massive, three-story science pavilion featuring “the latest exhibit technologies,” including augmented reality and ubiquitous computing.

Industry experts project the buildout and new attractions – funded with $10 million from Florida, $5 million in federal funds, $1 million locally and $35 million in “other” money – will make the center “the most visited ticketed destination in Palm Beach County.”
