South Florida Museum

When in South Florida, visit the South Florida Museum (and manatee rescue). It’s in downtown Bradenton and features a planetarium, an aquarium, and an eclectic* collection of artifacts. The manatee keeper provided an excellent narrative about the manatees. For manatees in the wild, see the post Manatees.

*eclectic (ĭ-klĕkˈtĭk)
adj. Selecting or employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles
In the case of this museum it means “some rich person donated a lot of their random stuff”
