local museums can be boring to outsiders, but this one isn't. It is beautifully done to interest both adults and children with interactive displays and dioramas. My husband said it was the most interesting attraction in the area. Cost was minimum.

Good personnel audio devices given to each of us. For seniors, it only cost $3 to get in and see the displays, which were very good. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Both my wife and I enjoyed the hour we spent there.

After visiting the Aquarium walk down the path and visit the Museum, they have a friendly staff that will welcome you, and start you off with a short "guided" tour. There's a lot of Florida history to be had. And a great room dedicated to...More
