South Florida Museum

Florida has long been a source of fascination for scientists and explorers, who have searched the Sunshine State for everything from fossilized mammals to gold. The state's natural riches are rivaled only by the cultures that have sprung up around them, and both are on full display at South Florida Museum.

The museum's first floor starts at the very beginning, with fossil evidence of Florida's earliest marine and mammal inhabitants. These fossils eventually make way for archaeological material from cultures that predate European contact. Special exhibits often fill out the museum with unique artifacts ranging from prehistoric artifacts to Penny Hardaway's fossilized high tops. As if that weren't enough, the museum also shares a campus with the Bishop Planetarium and the Parker Manatee Aquarium, where guests can observe and learn about the beloved sea cow. And the museum is also home to Snooty, the world's oldest known manatee.

Customer Reviews

The museum is located in a beautiful part of Bradenton, close to the Riverwalks. The manatee are so peaceful and amazing to view. I am so happy that I brought my kids to understand the importance of safe boating for the future of manatee!

My kids enjoyed it. It would be nice to see the manatees up closer, touch them and feed them the way it use to be years ago. They we're very excited though. The planetarium was great.

Charming museum - lots of information on the history of South Florida from prehistoric times to the post-World II years. The best thing is Snooty the manatee and the other manatees currently in residence. The people who work at the museum are very pleasant and kind. Highly recommend!
