    The Florida Museum on the University of Florida campus houses more than 40 million specimens and artifacts, including one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of butterflies and moths, and is one the nation’s top five museums. Visitors to the exhibits facility on the UF campus can enjoy hundreds of exotic, live butterflies in the award-winning "Butterfly Rainforest" exhibit, witness a South Florida Calusa Indian welcoming ceremony, experience a life-size limestone cave and enjoy fossil skeletons, including a mammoth and mastodon from the last ice age. Families with children ages 8 and under will love the new hands-on "Discovery Zone."
