The Jacksonville Museum of Science & History is happy to host the national traveling exhibit Megaladon: Largest Shark that Ever Lived. This exhibit showcases fossils of this amazing creature along with an educational scale-model of the shark that museum goers can walk through! The exhibit wouldn’t be complete without modern shark specimens and hours of educational fun for the kids. Be sure to check it out before it leaves the museum on September 14th!
