Welcome to Florida's official state natural history museum and one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing natural history museums.

The Florida Museum of Natural History, the largest natural history museum in the southeastern United States, occupies three buildings on the University of Florida campus. The collection includes more than 28 million objects, with the dinosaur exhibits and most of the permanent exhibits in Powell Hall. Among the items on view are more than 500 fossils and animal bones from 65 million years of Florida history.

Travel around the exhibit’s central island and witness the fossil history of Florida during the Eocene, Oligocene, Miocene, Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. See Florida's first land animals and an amazing parade of life through the ages. The exhibit ends with the arrival of humans in Florida near the end of the Pleistocene.

The Florida Museum of Natural History is open daily, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission to the permanent collection is free, although some special exhibits carry admission fees. Parking is free on weekends.
