Nature on Display
One of the highlights from my tour of the Florida Museum of Nature History was the Butterfly exhibit. By seeing how many people were in the exhibit, I could tell that this particular exhibit was most people's favorite. The weather was overcast when I went, so it was the perfect time to see the butterflies clearly. I found the design of this exhibit to be appealing, because I love nature and it reminded me of going on a hike. There was a direct path that allowed my friends and I to take our time while viewing the butterflies. Also, we were lucky enough to arrive right at 2 when the daily butterfly release was happening, so we were able to witness hundreds of butterflies being released into the exhibit. Seeing different types of butterflies in person made me realize how small of a bubble I've been living in. For example, I have just seen pictures of butterflies online, but being able to see these butterflies in person made me realize how big our world really is. Although seeing all the different exhibits was still really amazing, walking through this one was the most appealing and my experience was enhanced because I toured the museum with my closest friends.
Nature and Ethics
As I went through this museum, I noticed that I appreciated all the nature more than I did before when I came as a child. My whole family is a huge hiking family so we all love nature and seeing different species and animals. Being able to see different types of frogs was really interesting because like the butterflies, it shows you how large our world is. There was a good majority of families who were touring the museum the same time as me and I got to witness the joy on children's faces when they toured the frog museum. The whole museum allowed everyone to connect with nature more because of how open everything was. The butterflies were not confined to a specific spot and there were multiple frogs in all the displays instead of just one.
