Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science

The Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science is a world-class educational and cultural organization that incorporates hands-on science activities with visual art exhibitions that teach as well as entertain. It is also a community resource for visual arts, science exploration, and humanities education: providing cultural understanding in support of lifelong learning. Of special interest to young children is the Ecolab, their live animal collection, which showcases several species of aquatic life that can be found in and around Florida, and allows visitors the opportunity to get an up close look at these incredible animals. The Ecolab houses hermit crabs, oysters and several echinoderms (sea stars and sea cucumbers), in addition to a Horseshoe Crab, Red Devil Cichlid, Striped burrfish and a Tomato clownfish! Also featured in the Ecolab is the Allan and Hazel Walker Shell Collection, an extensive display of several univalve and bivalve mollusk species. Visitors can also explore the hand-on shell cart to feel a sea star or pick up a conch and hear the ocean inside!
