Bishop Museum of Science and Nature in Bradenton

Published on 01/14/21: Just south of St Pete is the city of Bradenton, home of The Bishop Museum of Science and Natural History!

With a great manatee exhibit (watch them from above and below surface), an abundance of local natural history, and a planetarium, we certainly enjoyed our excursion! The museum is two stories tall and has lots packed into it.

An added bonus is the location. By virtue of being directly on the Riverwalk, you’ll park once, visit the museum, and can then enjoy a leisurely walk along the waterfront, scouting dining/drink options. The whole family wins!

We suggest making reservations on the museum’s website to ensure space in this lower capacity environment) | Follow us for activity suggestions around our beautiful area!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
