Turtle Point Science Center is an adventure in hands-on science exploration.  Since opening in October 1999, Turtle Point has educated and entertained thousands of school children and visitors from all around the world.  Situated on 20 acres adjacent to Big Escambia Creek, the Center is home to a variety of reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, and mammals.  In addition to animal encounters, visitors enjoy a butterfly house, vegetable garden, herb garden, fish pond, and boardwalk.  Please call us to schedule a field trip or group tour, or just stop by and visit.  Turtle Point is open to the public from 8 am until 3 pm when school is in session.  Please call for specific closures (251) 296-3401.
