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

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.

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

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...
