This exhibition highlights research on climate change over Earth’s history. Discover what 70 million years of evidence reveals about our dynamic climate, including today’s rapid rate of change. Explore a natural history climate timeline to see when some of the most fascinating events occurred, including the age of dinosaurs, the first arrival of humans and time periods of great civilizations. This is the first in a series of exhibits exploring science and world issues the Museum plans to display in the coming years.


First Colony: Our Spanish Origins
Opens Oct. 17, 2015

First Colony exhibit logo - smallLong before Jamestown, Spaniards, free and enslaved Africans and Native Americans crafted our country’s first enduring European settlement — St. Augustine, in 1565. Discover the first colony through archaeology, history and the stories of people who lived there in this hands-on, interactive exhibition. These first colonial immigrants created America’s original "melting pot" — a colorful, multicultural society that was new then, but might seem familiar today.

See it now in St. Augustine or visit when the exhibit comes to Gainesville in October.
