This Florida Museum of Natural History exhibit has been exciting museum-goers since 2008. Now, the ‘Megalodon’ exhibit returns to the museum after being refurbished.

The “Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived” exhibit has touched more than 1.5 million people across the U.S. and Canada as it has traveled to different museums. Exhibits Coordinator Julie Waters said that the museum recently refurbished the exhibit and will showcase all the new additions to Gainesville visitors before it travels to other museums, according to a Florida Museum press release.

“‘Megalodon’ continues to fascinate visitors around the world, so we decided to give the exhibit some TLC before extending the traveling tour,” said Waters in a press release. “We updated some of the older scientific content and refreshed many of the components with new graphics, wall structures and a fresh paint job. This gave the exhibit a new look, and we can’t wait for the community to see it!”

To view the exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History, admission is $8 for adults; $7 for Florida residents, seniors and non-UF college students; $5.50 for kids ages 3-17; and free for museum members and UF students with a valid Gator 1 ID.
