Surfing Florida Surf’s up! The Florida Museum celebrates the state’s famous coastal waters with the exhibit Surfing Florida. Developed by Florida Atlantic University, the exhibit features photographs and interpretive graphics on the state’s surfing history, as well as videos with famous film clips and oral histories from well-known Florida surfers. The Florida Museum’s research programs will broaden the scope of the exhibition with surf memorabilia and specimens to explore the question “What’s under the surf?” The Florida Museum’s famed International Shark Attack File and shark research programs, fish and marine invertebrate collections, and other areas will contribute to the science content.

Big Food: Health, Culture and the Evolution of Eating
Opens Feb. 15, 2014
Food is fundamental to life. Yet our eating habits have become incredibly complex – far beyond satisfying simple nutritional needs. Excess weight and obesity now surpass undernourishment as the world’s leading food and nutrition problem. Filled with hands-on interactives and artifact displays, this exhibit explores how human biology, behavior and culture influence what we eat, and challenges visitors to reflect on their roles in personal and community health and the sustainability of our food system.
