The Florida Museum of Natural History will open its newest featured exhibit, “Permian Monsters: Life before the Dinosaurs” Sept. 29 with free activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. As an early celebration of National Fossil Day, visitors may speak with members of Florida fossil clubs about what fossils can be found around the state, and meet paleontologists and geologists who work to uncover the secrets of these ancient remains. Visitors can learn about the world’s greatest extinction event with life-size models, real fossils, interactive dig pits and computer games. While the exhibit has an entrance fee, museum members and UF students with a valid Gator 1 card receive free admission.
