Yes, the Smithsonian is in Florida! We are a branch of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, located on Florida’s Atlantic Coast.
The Smithsonian Marine Station is a research center specializing in marine biodiversity and ecology. At the Smithsonian Marine Ecosystems Exhibit, located within the St. Lucie County Aquarium, visitors can explore marine habitats of Florida and learn about the interconnectedness and importance of each ecosystem.
Please feel free to share thoughts about our posts, ask us questions, or tell us about your visit.
