You are given a personal guide to help you explore this wonderful piece of history. It blows my mind that it is maintained by private donations and volunteers. I take all my out of state visitors to enjoy it and no one has ever been disappointed. There is something for everyone! You are educated on the local history of the... More

They work hard to please for little profit, mostly donated items and volunteers keep it going, we donated a sewing machine back in 2007

The guided evening tour brings out the true spirits of the house. My daughter swore someone kept touching her hair and the child's toys seem to move around.

We had some time to kill before playing at the World Woods golf course in Brooksville, FL and decided to tour the Heritage Museum in Brooksville. The tour guides (docents) made the tour! Ronnie and Sharon took us through the house which was built by two different individuals in the 1800s. They were extremely knowledgeable, both in terms of the... More

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

This beautiful house that is the home of Hernando Historic Museum Association offers a glimpse back into time. 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
