  • Such a neat little place! It was $3 per person and it was WELL worth it. No one else was there when we went and Evan showed us around and answered all of our questions. He is SO knowledgeable and funny. It almost felt like we had a private tour guide. We had about 50 mins before the place closed and Evan was so nice and told us to take our time. We didn’t stay past 5 but would have if we didn’t want to take up his time! I think an hour and half would be a good amount to read everything but you can do it quicker if you’re just a visual person. He recommended to stop in Fort King, which was also nearby. If you are interested in the Seminole wars check that out too. That one is free and has a short movie, a display, and of course the fort. There is more to come in the next several years from what they told us.
  • Great history of the area. Good displays. Plan about 40- 60 minutes depending on how quickly you read the postings. $3 for adults.
