Manatee Lagoon offers interactive educational exhibits, solar trees, and selfie spots which are ideal for social media. The featured presentation is a waterfront attraction in Palm Beach County. Manatee Lagoon is located at 6000 North Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. It is an ideal idea for a free excursion with the family.

It is a FREE educational attraction with a dedicated area for viewing manatees up close. The 16,000-square-foot center features engaging, hands-on exhibits for visitors to learn all about these threatened and unique creatures as well as the natural wonders of the surrounding Lake Worth Lagoon. 

The Florida manatee is the largest of all the world’s manatees. In fact, the most gigantic can weigh more than 3,500 pounds! Measuring up to twelve feet from snout to tail, most adult manatees tip the scales at more than 1,200 pounds. That is four times the weight of the black bear, Florida’s next-largest mammal.
