The Dante Fascell Visitor Center offers a number of indoor options. A museum highlights the park's four ecosystems with exhibits, sound and video. The Gallery highlights the works of contemporary local artists inspired by the park's resources. Several films highlight various aspects of the park, and Biscayne National Park: A Spectrum of Life is an excellent introduction. Kids and adults will find plenty to discover in the Touch Table, and kids can get started on earning a Junior Ranger badge. Ask about additional indoor educational opportunities at the information desk.
