A lot to see here from the skeletons of Dinosaurs to Spacesuits. Also info on early Indians and settlers in Florida. Great place to take the kids.

I thought that we would be disappointed in going without kids. It was a surprise. It was a newer space than I expected. They had convenient handicapped parking and an elevator. The staff was friendly and helpful. The planetarium was a nice surprise.

My wife and I went here over the summer and it was a lot of fun. Please visit this place if you come to Jacksonville. It is one of the few places here that puts a smile on my face.

We went in August 2017. We were mainly coming for the planetarium but really enjoyed the museum. There is a nice room for reptiles and birds who can't be released into nature. But our favourite might be the dinosaurs parts because you can control them...More

Someone had told us that this place was boring, but I disagree... it was a pleasant surprise with a lot of different exhibits and hands on activities. For the cost of our admission, we also got to catch a show in the planetarium. Great fun...More
