The docents were eager to share their knowledge and each room of the house is furnished with unique items. There is a late Victorian kitchen filled with antique food preparation items, a militarization, a communications room with an old telephone switchboard from the two, an old doctor's office and two lovely bedrooms. One of those bedrooms belonged to Jessie Mae... More

Quaint eclectic museum - great idea for a rainy day - over all a fun and informative experience! Each room has it's own theme and collection. The museum guides were friendly and knowledgeable.

The guide was very knowledgeable and took her time explaining the history. The gift shop has some great gift ideas. Too bad we don't live closer, I would love to do the haunted tour.

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
