The Junior League of Miami received the Visionary Award for their contribution in founding the museum in 1949; museum trustee, Guillermo “Willy” Gomez, received the Miami Science Museum Award for laudable volunteerism; and Florida Power & Light received the Vanguard Award for their efforts in promoting and advancing the future of the museum.
