Trip Planner: USA / Florida / Southwest Gulf Coast / Bradenton / Bishop Museum Of Science And Nature
Immerse yourself in the history of the state's Gulf Coast at Bishop Museum Of Science And Nature, where the story of the shoreline comes to life through artifacts, the stars, and the water. The planetarium reveals the story of the stars, and the aquarium tells the story of the waters with living displays. The latter houses a manatee habitat with viewing windows and a manatee rescue and rehabilitation center. The building and grounds combine three attractions, so consider a rest in the Spanish Plaza--an internal courtyard--in between sites to maintain your stamina.

This is a great place to see manatees up close, and receive a lot of information about them and their habitat. They also have many exhibits showing Florida life and history. But the best part is the planetarium! The presenter did a great job of explaining the solar system, the Milky Way, and the Universe. He used many examples to help the audience grasp his descriptions.
This was a wonderful experience for our family. We were able to watch the manatees get fed and catch the planetarium show, which was a personal favorite! I was impressed with the amount that was on exhibition for such a small museum. They really did an amazing job showing off this beautiful states treasures. The staff was great and personable. I would highly recommend anyone to swing by this great museum!
