The ‘Megalodon’ Exhibit

The famous ‘Megalodon’ exhibit returns to the Florida Museum of Natural History after being refurbished. The exhibit first started at the museum in 2008, and it toured around the U.S. and Canada, exciting more than 1.5 million museum-goers.

In a press release, Julie Walters, Exhibit Coordinator, said that the Florida Museum refurbished the “Megalodon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived” exhibit and it will present all the new exhibit additions to the Gainesville community before the exhibit goes back on tour.

“‘Megalodon’ continues to fascinate visitors around the world, so we decided to give the exhibit some TLC before extending the traveling tour,” said Walters 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 visit the ‘Megalodon’ exhibit, 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 members of the museum and UF students with a valid Gator 1 UF. The museum will house the exhibit through January 10, 2021.
