Fodor's Expert Review South Florida Museum and Parker Manatee Aquarium
Snooty, the oldest manatee in captivity, is the headliner here. Programs about the endangered marine mammals run four times daily, and the first-floor gallery features fossils that tell the story of prehistoric Florida. View changing exhibits in the East Gallery; glass cases and roll-out drawers on the second floor allow you to look at exhibits normally out of public view. At the Bishop Planetarium (with a domed theater screen), programs presented range from black holes to the origin of life itself.
