  • Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum
    Arthur Stone spent six decades assembling the collection of classic Packard autos that makes up the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. His love for the Packard's combination of engineering and elegance has resulted in the United States' largest Packard collection, containing one model from each year of the company's 58-year existence. The museum's 30,000-square-foot space mirrors the look of a 1920s Packard showroom, with heraldic-style gas-station signs hanging above gleaming specimens of auto history, all restored to full working order. Models such as the 2201 Woodie wagon from 1948 demonstrate the manufacturer's innovation amid changing times, and the 1909 18 Speedster evokes an era when saddled cheetahs shared roads with cars. Original concept-design drawings line the walls, and an expansive library contains shelves laden with periodicals and fascinating reading materials.

  • Young At Art Children's Museum
    In 1989, Young At Art began as a small, 3,200-square-foot children’s museum dedicated to shaping young minds and enriching the community through the transformative power of art. Since then, the tiny workshop has grown into a 55,000-square-foot collection of activities celebrating the diverse influences of art on our lives and imaginations, garnering a rare accreditation by the American Association of Museums for its efforts. At ArtScapes—one of the four main exhibits—kids and their parents travel through The Cave, a frantic slideshow of images conveying 5,000 years of human history, step into a replica of a New York City subway car, and view examples of graffiti as a means of creative expression against the oppressive forces of aluminum spray cans. Elsewhere, WonderScapes transports children up to 4 years old to a world inspired by the illustrations of DeLoss McGraw, whose version of Alice in Wonderland won the Society of Illustrators Book of the Year award in 2002, and GreenScapes demonstrates the immutable intersection of art and the environment as visitors build sculptures from natural materials. Never ones to ignore their creativity, teenagers can find refuge in the Teen Center, where a graphic design lab with Mac computers and a recording studio let them convert their pre-calc homework into digital form before it’s too late.

  • International Game Fish Association
    To beat the all-tackle world record for a yellowfin tuna, you'd have to hook a behemoth weighing in the neighborhood of 450 pounds. Should any angler ever successfully snag such a fish, the record keepers of the International Game Fish Association will be among the first to announce the catch's confirmed stature. As part of their mission to conserve all types of game fish and to promote ethical angling practices, the IGFA representatives also advise fishermen on how to bring the catch ashore, verify its measurements, and release it while causing as little stress to the fish as possible. The association’s conservation efforts continue with its IGFA Great Marlin Race program, a partnership with Stanford University that outfits fishermen with research equipment to achieve a better understanding of marlin biology and the cause of pruney fingers. The IGFA also keeps the community engaged with ethical game fishing by hosting school groups and summer camps for kids. Beyond this programming, the IGFA maintains a museum that honors the history of sport fishing and its legendary anglers.

  • Coral Springs Center for the Arts
    Believe it or not, Coral Springs Center for the Arts was once an old gym. But after a 1996 renovation installed a 1,471-seat theatre and deflated every ghost-inhabited basketball, the venue became the culturally rich institution it is today. Every year, approximately 200,00 patrons migrate to its riverside confines for a packed schedule of Broadway shows, comedians, jazz luminaries, and pop stars. In addition to its performing arts, the Center's Coral Springs Museum of Arts showcases both a permanent collection and traveling exhibits.
