Step into a world of yesterday and catch a glimpse of life in the past with exhibits native to Central Florida and beyond. The goal is to preserve the natural beauty and history of the Space Coast region. So, here you will find historic artifacts, antiques, rockets and fossils and more. The By-Gone Beasts exhibit includes ancient skeletons of a saber tooth cat and mastodon, among others. Kids enjoy the interactive activities, like a rocket simulation. Also look for ecological and educational programs, a museum story, lobby and the special Winchester Wing, where you can find a permanent exhibit about Brevard County history. Bring a picnic and enjoy the museum outside, too. You will find picnic tables and a pavilion on site to make it a full occasion.
