Fodor's Review

Housed in the St. Lucie County Aquarium and run by the Smithsonian Institute, whose research facility next door is where scientists study local ecosystems (once-monthly tours are organized), this facility has a 3,000-gallon coral-reef tank, originally located in the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. The park-like setting, where children love to play, makes it an ideal picnic destination. Admission is free on the first Tuesday of every month.
