Very nice small museum. The Windover exhibit was what brought me to visit. I truly enjoyed the films and exhibits on it. They need to update their paper brochure however. It directly contradicts some of the facts stated in the movie presentation. I plan to return later to enjoy the butterfly garden and hiking paths with my grandchildren.

It's a nice little museum and they had more exhibits than I thought they would. The husband of the director was quite informative and enjoyed sharing what all was going on at the museum. It was a very nice visit.

It was a great visit. It is nice to go places that are "in your own backyard". Great collection of artifacts and animal fossils. We loved the nature trails as well! Looking forward to going again.

What a wonderful experience. The History right here in our own back yards, practically. So educational and fascinating. We will be coming back again and again...it will be a destination just like the Space Center to show "Visitors"!

Some of the 'interactive' displays were broken, but other then that we had an enjoyable time!

From Our Editors

Before paved streets and residential blocks took its place, a maze of wetlands rife with rustling wildlife thrived in Central Florida. Such a scene is hard to imagine amid a backdrop of loud car horns, but skeptical visitors to The Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science can travel back in time and see it for themselves on a stroll through the museum’s 19.5-acre nature preserve.

This remarkable preserve joins special exhibits dedicated to regional and cultural artifacts in fulfilling the museum’s mission to keep Florida’s heritage alive in the minds of its current inhabitants. Since the nonprofit facility first opened in 1973, an influx of state and philanthropic funding has spawned further expansion. One of the most crucial add-ons, the Taylor Wing, now houses a nonstop procession of visiting exhibitions and the kid-themed Imagination Center, where young hands can touch actual fossils of mammoths and 8-track tapes. Popular ongoing exhibits include large dioramas of local ecosystems and the Windover Story exhibit, which illustrates how the residents of Brevard County lived 7,000 years ago.
