    If you’re planning a trip to Florida, you might want to take a break from the heat and check out some of the incredible museums the state has to offer. Whether you’re interested in history, science, art, or anything in between, Florida’s got you covered. 

    Here are 5 of the best museums you won’t want to miss!

    1. Great Explorations Children’s Museum

    In case you are traveling to Florida with children, there is a museum even adults will enjoy visiting. This museum in St. Petersburg is for small hands with energetic and eager minds. They can learn about meteorology, agriculture, nutrition, architecture, and more through hands-on experience.   

    For instance, children can become a veterinarian for a day or become a firefighter, or even host a weather forecast. There are more places on the same property, such as Sunken Gardens, that you and the children might enjoy.
