“Nothing like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a unique, fascinating place preserving and explaining real Florida, old Florida the land, the animals, the culture. The boardwalks are fabulous. Don't miss the zip lines. This place is a treasure.

“So much to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a very interactive place for children and adults. The animal exhibits are natural habitats, the historic buildings are interesting, and the Tree Top Adventure is excellent. The staff is very welcoming. This is a good value for everyone.

“A treat for the children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great outing for children; lots to see and do. One can see how the early Florida pioneers lived and supported themselves pioneer. There is a pioneer farm (with animals), barn school house,and store. There is a train caboose the children can inspect. An elevated viewing walkway allows one to see a variety of wild life. One can also take the tree to tree high wire route for fun. And there's more exhibits! There is a small food operation for "short order" food at reasonable prices.It will wear out the kids, so bedtime is easier. It's a good outing. My kids enjoyed it years ago; my grandchildren enjoy it now.

Great museum for families with young/school age children! All of the exhibits are engaging and educational. Staff is always friendly and helpful. The museum hosts a series of seasonal/holiday events which are always great fun. Highly recommend!
