Enjoyed the visit to Crane Point Museum & Nature Center. I would encourage anyone with a couple of free hours to visit it.
This site is part of The Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, and has some interesting history to tell. The original shack of Mr. Adderly's family still stands, as does the home of the Cranes, who purchased the land from him. There is bug protection available before you start the hike - it is advisable to use it. It's an... More

We had three grandchildren age 4-9 with us and apart from the pelican exhibit there was little of interest for them. The staff were very friendly and helpful but we felt that it was expensive for what it was. Hopefully, there will be some updating and overdue maintenance.
Visited in March, 2013. The reviews I read prior to our trip sounded more interesting that the place turned out to be. None of the interactive displays or sea life exhibits were available.
