In 1949, a manatee named Baby Snoots arrived at the Museum and would later be known as “Snooty™.” The educational programs that it provided for students over decades helped make this leading cultural organization one of Florida’s most treasured museums.

The Museum’s new home on 10th Street West was not only a more spacious location but also allowed them to create an incredible planetarium. The Bishop Planetarium honors the memory of Edward and Lillian Bishop, two people who were dedicated in helping make history happen right here at this very site where they both worked together as educators during some historic times for our country.

The fire destroyed the Museum’s exhibits, but it also had an effect on its future. The early morning incident resulted in damages that would take years to repair; however these setbacks provided motivation for new projects like renovations of administrative areas and immersive natural history galleries which opened within two months after reopening their doors once again!
