Chief Executive Officer
The mission of the Museum of Discovery & Science (the Museum) is to provide experiential pathways to lifelong learning in science for children and adults through exhibits, programs and films. Located in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale's Art and Science District, the Museum serves more than 450,000 annual visitors and over 10 million visitors since opening in 1992. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and the Association of Science-Technology Centers, the Museum features 120,000 square feet packed with dynamic and interactive science exhibits, learning labs, café, store and grand atrium. Located in the atrium, the 52-foot tall Great Gravity Clock is the biggest kinetic energy sculpture in Florida and is one of only three in the world. The 300-seat AutoNation IMAX® Theater at the Museum features both 2D and 3D films, with the only Certified Giant Screen in South Florida and the only IMAX® with Laser projection system in Florida.

The new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will inherit a high performing enterprise and will have the opportunity to shape the future strategic direction for one of the largest and most visited museums in Florida. The recent expansion, renovations, and new Science Park strengthen the Museum's attractiveness to deliver meaningful learning opportunities, to promote science education, and to build a stronger workforce in South Florida. The new CEO will be able to leverage the strong infrastructure to elevate the profile of the Museum, locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, develop new exhibits and programming, and build an organizational culture that can adapt to change. The CEO will have the opportunity to provide the strategic and inspirational leadership for the Museum to offer a distinctive visitor experience and to advance science and technology learning opportunities. The new CEO will mentor and manage a committed and talented leadership team that consists of a Vice President for Visitor Services, Marketing and Communications; Vice President for Development; Vice President for Finance/Chief Financial Officer; and Vice President Programs, Life Sciences, and Exhibits.
