If you don't know much about manatees and their migration habits, food source, love of fresh water, etc, then an hour at the Mantatee Observation and education Center is worth a stop. Exhibits are eyeball high to kids and many hands on experiences await them. At the right time of year you will see manatees. Having been to Blue Springs in Deland where the manatees gather in the winter in crystal clear water, this was an OK visit. On the other hand, for those from away (up north) it is a good primer for learning about the species. Great staff and nice gift store. An hour should do it.
