Use scientific tools to uncover real fossils found right here in the Sunshine State. Marvel at the remains of mammoths, giant ground sloths and other prehistoric creatures.

Last admission into the area is 4 p.m. The last Mystery Trail admission is 4:30 pm. Recommended for ages seven and up.

For an extra fee, sift through a sluice and take home your very own fossils and minerals!
