Research provides the foundation for all that happens at the Florida Museum and University of Florida.

This exhibit spotlights current UF initiatives in the science, technology, engineering and math fields, and celebrates the history of the Museum and its world-class collections through photos, discovery drawers and video. The exhibit also includes changing stories about UF and Museum research projects.

Students in the UF Department of Agricultural Education and Communication play an integral role as they film, edit and produce videos featuring some of UF’s most interesting discoveries and research.

The Museum is more than 100 years old, and has been at UF since 1906. Learn how it has grown from a small collection of teaching specimens into an international powerhouse for research and education.

Open drawers to view objects from the Museum’s collections and the information they provide about biodiversity, climate, conservation, culture, evolution, health, invasive species and sustainability.
