Alligators: Dragons in Paradise

March 6  – April 11

Created by the Museum of Florida History, Alligators: Dragons in Paradise is a potpourri of fact and fantasy that explores our enduring fascination with the alligator and the alligator’s symbolic and sociological role in Florida history. The exhibit includes artifacts such as alligator bags, shoes, and purses; cast reproductions of alligator and crocodile skulls; and a variety of other alligator souvenirs and memorabilia.

Co-sponsors:  Norm and Laurie Stephens; Don and Jean Appelquist
