Family Insider: Jacksonville's Museum of Science & History

    By Carrie McLaren

    Imagine 12,000 years of history, from the first settlers of this spot on Florida's ocean coast through Super Bowl XXXIX. Imagine a hands-on look at science, interacting with artifacts and animals. Imagine getting a glimpse at life aboard the Maple Leaf, a 19th century steamship frozen in time when it sank in 1864, then turning around for extreme science demonstrations. Imagine education without the boundaries of a school, and you'll get an idea of what you'll find at the Museum of Science and History.
