Florida Museum of Natural History Viktor toth

At the museum I found the Butterfly exhibit the most appealing because I was able to see a variety of butterflies up close and really feel like I was in nature. The design was especially cool because it was very much like a forest where all different types of butterflies live. Before going to see this I did not really understand how butterflies live and coexisted with one another. All the vibrant, colorful butterflies really made it enjoyable.

The museum did offer an opportunity to experience nature in ways that Leopold recommends by having a hands on and up close viewing area of the butterflies. As you walk through the exhibit and the butterflies are flying all around you, you really feel like you are part of their element. I also felt very peaceful and calm while walking through the exhibit. After leaving the exhibit I do agree with Leopold about trying to be members of nature and not just "conquerors of the land."

The museum helps us step out of our ordinary lives by taking us back to pre human eras with all the prehistoric fossils and exhibits of all the early human eras. It helps us connect with nature with the butterfly exhibit and lets you get face to face with the butterflies and their home. This helps us understand the wonders and history of the world. In addition, it helps us see a part of the world we don't get to everyday because we are caught up with our busy lives.
