Q&A with Cindi Morrison, Director

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

Our permanent collection and temporary exhibits present a wide variety of types of art, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, decorative art, and antiquities. There is something for everyone.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

Visitors can learn something about different cultures and different eras, from pre-Columbian artifacts to contemporary art. Our temporary exhibits change frequently and there is always something new to see.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We offer a scavenger hunt for children that encourages them to look more closely at the art and find the answers to the questions. After completing their scavenger hunt the children are rewarded with a prize to remember their visit to the Appleton.

Staffed by a corps of chimp-loving volunteers working alongside veterinarians, the nonprofit Suncoast Primate Sanctuary provides a safe haven for more than 100 rescued animals. Chimpanzees and monkeys swing freely in their enclosures, living out their days after being moved from other environments, including zoos, sanctuaries, and research centers, or retiring from the film industry as animal actors and studio executives. During public hours, children and adults can wander among the menagerie to feed the monkeys and meet other critters such as orangutans, macaws, lemurs, and alligators.

As they flock to the nearby beaches of Clearwater or the nightlife of Tampa, most tourists overlook Dunedin, a pretty burg known for its sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Astride their two-wheeled steeds, visitors can explore the Pinellas Trail that cuts through downtown, steering their segways alongside runners, bikers, and the town’s famous rollerblading squirrels.

In December of 2005, an orphaned bottlenose dolphin was rescued after being caught in a crab trap. She was brought to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium's rehabilitation center, where the team worked constantly to bring the dolphin, now named Winter, back to health. Soon, for the first time in her adult life, Winter swam like a true dolphin. It was a story of courage and heart worthy of Hollywood?in fact, Winter starred as herself in 2011's Dolphin Tale, a cinematic recreation of her life that reached #1 at the box office.

Today, Winter lives at Clearwater Marine Aquarium with her her bottlenose friend Hope, who'll soon star with her in the upcoming Dolphin Tale 2. Here, visitors can watch them swim and play, along with many more animals who got a second chance thanks to the aquarium's rehabilitation team. Visitors can meet these inspirational animals, witness the team in action, and support the effort to save marine animals.
