Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum, Kissimmee

4.6
The Osceola County Historical Society was founded in 1949 by a small group of volunteers with a passion to preserve the history of Osceola County. Since then, the organization has grown tremendously with two locations.

The first location is at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. Here, the history of Osceola County is told from early Native Americans to cattle kings. Explore six different exhibits featuring both historical and environmental knowledge and interactive displays.

The second location is the Pioneer Village. Located in northwestern Osceola County, Florida, its grounds feature several late-19th century structures that depict life when citrus was king, Crackers ruled the scrub, and everyone lived simply off the land and their ingenuity. Currently, the Pioneer Village is closed for relocation where it will feature even more historic structures from Osceola County. Join us this Fall for the grand opening!

  • This is my second time there. I love this place. Looking back at Osceola County's history is amazing. I am originally from Osceola County and it is crazy how much it has changed over the years. This place is like stepping back in time. It is a wonderful place to bring your family!
  • We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to visit Shingle Creek Park and parked behind the visitors center - on 192 going west and went inside. The visitor's center is much more than what you think, it's a small museum, that is high quality and provides great insight about the history of the area - Kissimmee . The museum director greets everyone who walks in the museum, is very friendly who provided us with much information. Don't miss seeing the exhibits - it's all free including access to beautiful Shingle Park. Kids will love everything about the center and the park. Don't forget to bring the kid's bicycles!
