They have programs highlighting different aspects of our community There is always something new to learn about the place we live. Great place to include when having a class reunion. more »
Very good lecture. Only complaint is tbe museum was over crowded. People were sitting on floor and against. Don't know what legal capacity is but it had to be over that at this lecture.
Wonderful and unique presentation focused on area history. I highly recommend this museum to Gainesville residents and visitors!
