We went to meet Snooty, oldest manatee in captivity. The show was great, he's a ham, and the two younger manatees that will be released soon were fun to watch. Kids weren't sure about touching all the sea urchins, but we had 3 kids, (7, 9, 14) and they all had fun. The Museum offered more than I thought, don't miss the upstairs! Some unique and interesting animals to wow the kids as well as adults. We had time for the kid friendly show in Palantarium and my oldest wants omgo back to see a show with stars and more. It's beautiful, well maintained, gift store prices fair. It was just an hour drive for us and a nice couple hours to keep kids busy over winter break. They left excited, educated, and wish to return. One note, 1st Sat after 4 its half price and some good shows for teenagers and above, something we will try to see. It's a gem. And we hope everyone will support it as while we live in South Sarasota County we are proud to have it in our area. Staff is informative, friendly, and helpful. They enjoyed the kids too! Just a great day!
