This Museum is a gem. Very well done, compact but easy to go through. The History of Cedar Key is very well explained and shown in displays and written word.

Gave a great overview of the area and how Cedar Key was established. Told of the importance of their clam farms, pencil factory and whisk broom manufacturing. All from cedar wood and Palm fronds there on the island.

This was closed on our first trip to CK, we were delighted to find it open on our most recent visit,,,$3.00pp fee to enter, well worth it, if you want to learn about old Florida and its history including railroad, pencil factory, whisk broom making, this is for you. Many artifacts on display, well informed knowledgeable guides to answer any... More

We enjoyed our walking tour thru the town. Learned alot about the history of Cedar Key. And took our time going thru the old house and seeing the historical objects they have on display. This is a must when you come here.

Great little museum, manned by volunteers who had a great and personal knowledge of the Cedar Key area. In fact I talked to one of the main donators to the museum on my visit. His family has made major contributions of time and exhibit materials to set-up and maintain the facility. This a good place to learn the history of... More

I'm not a museum person but when the person who gives you a tour is the son (in his 80's) of the house owner, it's special.. If you're in Cedar Key, you need to know some history of it. This is the place to see and learn it. There is an entrance fee of $3 per adult but it's worth... More
