The Florida Museum of Natural History By Eric Frank

Carnavalent Museum

Nature on Display

One exhibit that was particularly appealing to me was the Butterfly exhibit. This is because it was very interactive and I got real close to really big, beautiful butterflies. This exhibit captured my attention by being outside. Museums are always looking to keep their guests interested and supplying a fascinating outdoor activity will attract a lot of visitors. I learned from this medium how butterflies act in their natural habitat. This was the perfect way because I was able to witness it first hand without having to read long paragraphs about it. This museum was so enjoyable because it was very creative. No exhibit was bland and they always tried to keep us fascinated.

Nature and Ethics

The Natural History Museum provided me the opportunity to experience nature in ways that Leopold recommends. This is because the exhibits did a great job in describing life and how valuable and intriguing it is. It gave me the desire to want to protect this Earth because life is so beautiful. As I went through the museum I was amazed at some of the displays. Other people felt the same way, always looking at the walls to find the next work of art or artifact. The museum connected with nature by using shark jaws and butterflies as well as other connections. This visit did not instill an ethical responsibility to nature because I was already aware of the threats to our plant. I do however think it is great for other people to see how important this world truly is.

Nature and the Human Spirit

The Natural History Museum helps us step out of our ordinary lives because it shows us things we never knew before. The whole point of museums are to learn and desire, both of which make us step out of our comfort zone. The more education we have, the more we appreciate the mystery and majesty of the natural world. I truly think the museum did a great job in capsuling the beauties of the world. Art from all cultures were displayed and talked about consistently.
