A great place to get info on the park and learn about all the things you will see and the different trails. If you have kids, ask for the Junior Ranger Activity guide.

This is your standard issue visitor center (which is a good thing). Educational exhibits, enthusiastic staff, and a short video/movie about the park. We were pleased.

Stopped here before taking anhinga trail hike. Lots of exhibits and information to look at. Learned facts about gators and was able to identify several other animals we'd seen in the park based on the displays.
