Did you know that an alligator could go through 3,000 teeth in a lifetime? That sun tan lotion was invented in Miami? Spend the morning with us and get answers to all your curious questions about South Florida’s history and much more.
Fossils tell stories about Earth’s history because they show that life on earth was once different from life found on earth today. Join us to learn all about fossils and how they are formed. Make your own fossils and see samples from our education collection.
