The zoo across the street is a lot of fun also.
Yeah, I've been to the zoo a lot lately (school field trips!) & it's not my fave animal adventure... not sure why I don't like that zoo?? I'm really into animals. Maybe I'm spoiled going to Disney's Animal Kingdom a lot, etc. Also, I'm a dog rescue kinda person & leave animals to their natural habitat kinda person which makes my fish keeping odd. HA! I guess that's why I try to keep my tanks as natural as possible w/ my kids' tanks the exceptions w/ spongebob & super hero decos! I just feel like zoos in FL or anywhere not native to the animal can provide tigers or monkeys, etc. the same kind of environment they deserve. Rescues like Busch Wildlife are different, the location is in FL, all the animals are rescues & indigenous. So ultimately, I guess that's why I don't enjoy zoos, I feel bad for the animals. I don't poo-poo anybody who likes zoos, *I* just don't have fun at them. Bummer.

I haven't been to the Museum since I was a kid & nothing about it seemed familiar and it's so much smaller than I remember! The aquariums really make it worth it... the time, the money, the drive and the fact that my kids really enjoyed the entire thing though, that's what mattered. They really love the zoo too.

To each their own, no worries. I've just been going to them both since I was very little and I've always enjoyed them. I love Animal Kingdom too!

The science museum definitely does seem smaller! They used to have a ton more exhibits but it was all replaced by the big aquariums. They used to have a small little aquarium room in the back by the planetarium which was pretty neat.

Do you remember the wall where you struck a pose, a big flash would go off... Then, you'd step away and your pose looked like a shadow on the wall??

Me too! When you walked in they had the swinging black ball that knocked over triangles for time.

It's by the bathroom in the big room w/ the ocean ancestors fossils. It's definitely hidden if you don't walk all the way around that room.
