The Silver River Museum and Environmental Education Center is a program of Marion County Public Schools. The museum is located within the Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, Florida, and works in close cooperation with the Florida Park Service.
The museum serves school groups Monday through Friday so we are closed to the public on weekdays. However, we welcome and encourage the public to visit the Museum on Saturdays and Sundays between 10 am and 4 pm and invite you to join us for one of our special educational events during the year.
