South Florida Museum is the largest natural and cultural history museum on Florida's Gulf Coast. The museum interprets the region from the Pleistocene to the present. In addition to the Museum, see Snooty, the resident manatee who turned 62 this summer and is believed to be the oldest manatee in captivity. You will also be able to view manatees in rehabilitation prior to their release in the wild. Your visit will be complete as you take in the Bishop Planetarium (fully upgraded in October 2013), a remarkable astronomy education resource, allowing visitors to explore their universe through traditional live star talks and immersive virtual journeys to the far reaches of the cosmos.
