This is the second time that I have gone and I find it to be a very enjoyable experience. I love how they change things up every so often. It is a great place for families to spend quality time together

This is a good museum for the price. (Ask for a discount seniors!) Plenty of stuff for adults and children to do. The Jacksonville history display was very interesting and thorough. There's lots of hands on things to try, an outdoor area, live native animals...More

This is a great place I'll bet most people don't ever see. It has a great location right by the waterfront and is worth the trip inside. Lots of things to see regarding storms, earthquakes and other natural occurences
