  • Very clean nice museum. We spent about 1.5 hours and I could have stayed easily another hour. It was very interesting learning about all of Floridas History.

  • Given that this place is free to visit AND park in the garage next door (with token from museum), I can’t complain. The kiddos (all under 7) enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt, but probably didn’t pick up much of the history. There are lots of random things to see in here. This is a great spot to go during the heat of the day to stay cool. Drinks, even WATER, is not allowed inside, so chug before you enter. We were forced to leave our bottles at the desk and pick them up on the way out.
  • It's a wonderful museum. I loved learning more about the state I know call home. I loved the village displays and all of the wonderful hidden nooks. My favorite two are the riverboat and Granny's attic. I definitely encourage people to visit!
