    Gumbo Limbo is a nice educational activity. The butterfly pavilion is nice except for the extremely large amount of giant spiders.  more »

    We learned a lot at this location. Our 2 year old daughter was delighted with everything he saw. Admission is free. The butterfly garden is a must. Super recommended.

    Very nice location which allows the public to get close to these massive sea turtles. Several staff we gave encountered are knowledgeable and always friendly. This is a great spot to take young kids, admission is free but they do take donations. The gift shop is pretty good for the size of operation. We frequentl here at least twice a year. We just did a fundraiser run/walk this year for Gumbo Limbo which was a ton of fun!

    Great place to visit with kids of all ages. Most of the boardwalk has been renovated. Can't wait to see the new tower in 2 years. My god kids loved the animal search game (get the color sheet in the main office.)

    I Really Enjoyed Gumbo Limbo. It is a Beautiful Nature Center. I Really Liked the Marine Life there. And, also Liked Looking at the Butterflies. I Had a Very Enjoyable Trip and Would Definitely Recommend this Place to Others.

    Had a lot of fun. Great place for kids, families, adults, and friends ... light hiking and great exhibits. Was under a bit of construction on our visit so half was closed and some was still being built. But it's being constructed newer and safer, so always a plus. Great place to see rescued turtles and a big aquariums of fish. Oh and don't forget to get your pokemon go on!

    It was nice. It's a 3 star cause its a little disorganized for the visitors did not really know where to go. But I felt the passion from the staff which is inspirational. Kids enjoyed it, and loved talking to the volunteers.
