I finally checked out the museum that was closed on my last visit to the State Park and ogled over the amazing Silver Springs artifacts. With so much great history on display, it's hard to believe anyone would do anything that could threaten this iconic natural and historic landmark. The whole day was remarkable; no rain despite an 80% chance of precipitation, great participation from those in attendance and a rousing standing ovation for John Moran's closing address.

|There were so many great exhibits at the museum that I plan on going back to see it again.|
|John "Man on Fire" Moran's rousing closing speech challenged current Governor Rick Scott to take action.|
