Well worth a visit! This museum is one of those hidden gems which pre-trip advisor would only have been promoted by word of mouth and would have been missed by many people. It receives no grants or public funding and is entirely maintained through the efforts of volunteers and donations so does not spend much (if anything) on marketing The... More

Built in 1856 and is on the National Register of Historic Homes and houses the May-Stringer Museum with over 11,000 artifacts for viewing. While there you may encounter the resident ghost, if not there are official ghost tours available by reservation on... More

I visited with my cousin who lives nearby and really enjoyed seeing this home. It is so beautifully and authentically decorated. One room is more interesting than the next but the visit would not have been as interested without the awesome docents giving the tour. They were so knowledgeable and personable. It was obvious that they love this home and... More

This is a nice hometown attraction ran by great volunteers who love what they do. It is a great way to learn about the history of Brooksville and realize that there were many generations here before you. There are some nice displays of a school room, doctors office, etc. All of the pieces in the museum have been donated and... More

The house is beautiful and the tour guides very knowledgable . The house is well kept and going up all the levels into the attic was really cool. If you love florida history this is a must see. Also brooksville has the train depot museum. Very awesome too.

I just visited the museum at night. What a wonderful experience going at night. Each room was decorated with Christmas lights and candles. A guide was dressed for the time period of the house and spoke about the construction of the house, the people that lived there and died there. Yes, they have a couple ghost. After going on the...

I have visited the Heritage Museum several time. Brooksville still had a switch borad operator in the early 70's. Going there is like stepping back in time. Several things at the museum were the same things my Grandmother used in her kitchen. In the 70;s. My Grandmother still used a May Tag ringer washing machine. She bought second hand in... More

This house has been open as a museum for decades and is stocked full of things I remember from around Brooksville. The vintage dress that the staff wear on special occasions makes it even more appealing. Perhaps there are places with more museum items, but this holds a special place to Brooksville residents...
