  • 100% recommended! Perfect place to go and have a nice time with the kids. My kids ages 9 and 5 really enjoyed it. The fishes are appreciated very well and they look super happy. Interesting information displayed everywhere. The people who work and the volunteers are very friendly and they are always ready to answer the children's questions. We will come back every time we visit Florida. Thanks for such a good job!
  • Gumbo Limbo is such a beautiful nature center. I have two kids (2 & 4) and they love it here. Beautiful sightings of butterflies 🦋, turtles 🐢, lots of fish 🐠, and sting ray too!!! There is a variety of things to see here. I believe it’s free access, but they do accept donations. This is a great activity whether it’s summer time, after school or something to do on the weekend with family. I love that it is stroller friendly, a huge plus! Bring your sunscreen and enjoy nature’s beauty!
