The plants and butterflies are just amazing. It is beautifully done and educational. I had a butterfly sit on my glasses for several minutes.
The museum has some great permanent displays, but it is always fun to visit when there are special exhibits. All the exhibits are geared to be educational for kids as well. I wouldn't recommend for very small children. Probably 6 or 7 and above. It is free to get into the museum (donations accepted) and a small fee for the... 更多
Great museum for such a small city. Free except special exhibits. Home of the incredible Butterfly Rainforest which is not free but worth the money. Excellent gift shop. Butterfly garden plant sales. Next door to Art usually. Also still free I believe. Just do it!

I would highly recommend a visit while you are in Gainesville, best of all it... 更多

The Florida Fossils:Evolution of Life and Land is exceptional. Skeletons of prehistoric Floridian animals such as the... 更多
very nice and diverse collection, this museum has something for everyone. Well laid out floor plan and great exhibits with amazing detail. We all enjoyed this stop for different reasons.
