Florida Natural History Museum


Last weekend, we took a trip up to Gainesville and visited the Florida natural History Museum at the University of Florida.  They had several interesting exhibits there, but what we really liked the most was the butterfly garden and immense collection of butterflies from around the world.



Not only was the size and diversity of the butterflies in the garden impressive, but so were all the beautiful plants.  This could also be called an enclosed botanical garden...  



We all enjoyed this part of the museum very much.



Another reason for the trip was Michael's interest in UF graduate school.  He went to an orientation type lecture, got to speak with current students and admissions advisors, and got a tour of the campus.

One of the many cases on display, beautiful!
