Changing Waters: The Human Impact on Florida's Aquatic Systems

Open February 11 through June 5, 2016 in the Museum’s East Gallery

Changing Waters documents the conditions of Florida’s aquatic ecosystems through approximately 40 of Lynne Buchanan’s photographs featuring our rivers, estuaries, lakes and bays. The exhibition provides narrative interpretations of the photos, along with maps and interpretive graphics, which shed light on the state of Florida’s waterways. The featured photos invite the viewer to examine the changing state of water and to consider his or her personal relationship to this critical resource. 


NOISE! open June 16 - August 21, 2016

From the ScienceWorks Hands-on Museum, NOISE! features exhibits on sound , music and hearing. This exhibition is sure to knock your socks off! Creating experiences from the "can you hear me now" Scream Chamber to the "good vibrations" of the Dancing Sand Plates, the exhibits take a powerful look at the physics of sound waves as well as how music and sound affects our mood.
