The hands-on Tampa Science Museum is designed to educate, amaze
and amuse both young and old with more than 450 interactive
exhibits. Visitors can, for example, experience what it is like to
be in a Gulf Hurricane with winds of up to 74 miles per hour
(200km/h), or defy the laws of gravity in space. The biology
section features a unique way to explore the human body and stroll
through a butterfly garden. Also at the museum is Florida's first
IMAX dome theatre, and the museum building is set in a 47-acre
nature reserve which features walking trails.
