The "MOSH" or Museum of Science and History—not far from downtown Jacksonville—is an educational and interactive center dedicated to science, nature and local history. Here, animals native to Northern Florida take the spotlight. Check out the virtual aquarium at Water Worlds—freshwater fish and species from three different oceans fill the tanks.

Rotating exhibits and special events mean there's always something new happening at the museum. Test the theory of gravity and the speed of sound at University of Science.

Florida's northern section has a long and fascinating history. Discover its past, wartime stories, and major milestones at Currents of Time.
