It's a museum built in the 60's judging by architecture - and it's a nice museum. There's a preserved house of a naturalist who lived here that's interesting. Out back is a trail that's part mixed woods and part along the water you see when crossing the bridges to get to Cedar Key.
We saw thrashes, wading birds, titmice. Fairly good birding.
Museum with bathrooms.
Hour or hour and a half maybe to do all of it.
Just getting out here is fun because you get to see where the actual Cedar Key residents live. The museum is fun because it's a well preserved old 60's building (I'm guessing). Lots of dioramas and artifacts on the history here. The house on the property is one a historic naturalist lived and showed the era he was from. Behind that the trail is nice but short - and lots of mosquitoes. The mixed forest part has a huge yaupon holly bush used by Native Americans to make caffeine laden "black drink" (wikipedia). Overlooking the water and bridges is pretty but mosquitoes get thick.
