Dragons in Paradise
July 3 - Sept. 8
An exciting exhibition from the Florida Museum of History: A potpourri of fact and fantasy that explores our enduring fascination with the alligator and the alligator's sociological and symbolic role in Florida history. Includes artifacts such as alligator bags, shoes, and purses; cast reproductions of alligator and crocodile skulls; and a variety of other alligator souvenirs and memorabilia.
A tabletop interactive quiz, a tanned alligator hide, and a four and-one-half-foot mounted alligator provide hands-on experiences for visitors. A simulated nest, complete with eggs, and an alligator growth chart trace the development of an alligator from birth to maturity.
