Barrier Island Center was a great place for viewing sea turtles. The center is well kept and all the people are very nice. There is also a nice wildlife sanctuary right across A1A. This is a family-friendly place.

I enjoyed the exhibits. The films were worth watching and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The deck around the building had picnic tables. The paths through the vegetation and down to the beach had informative signage. Parking was close. Animals are not allowed in the building, service animals excepted.

We truly loved stoping here! My children learned lots, and so did us parents. We enjoyed the film being shown and all the hands on learning. We loved learned so much about sea turtles and their nests/eggs/babies. Really enjoyed the real animals (sea horse, turtle, fish etc) wish there was a little more of that! The outside was fun too, but looked as though it was run down or maybe needed cleaned up. My only compliant was the person working the desk, we was not very nice and seemed annoyed by my girls questions about thing which we such a missed opportunity I wish hadn’t gone that way. She followed us outside after awhile and my girls instinctively tried to get her to smile or be friendly and she ignored them and walked in. As we were leaving, there was some staff cleaning things up in the parking lot and they were SO kind. Asked what they had learned, if we had any questions etc! Be sure to bring some cash to put in the donation box to contribute to this amazing, educational space! Date of visit: 2/6/2020
