Nice small museum. The staff is very friendly and informative. On every other Wednesday, part of the tour is guided by a nice 87 year olds who is a native of Cedar Key. We were lucky enough to have him. The tour is not long, but it's well worth the price ($2, I believe) They have some interesting artifacts in... More

I was pleasantly surprised with all I learned. I don't want to say too much; go and find out yourself.

Loved the remodel they did. I was here over 15 years ago and they have done a wonderful job of preserving this area's history.

The museum was small, yet for the size it provided many interesting local 'treasures'. The staff were engaging and helpful. The most interesting part of our visit happened through our encounter with their story teller in the back building. We were planning to ask him about local broom making; however, when he noticed our attention to the railroad exhibit, he... More

The Cedar Key Historical Museum is a treasure. Throughout the two buildings there are exhibits of Cedar Key history. It was interesting to see how the brooms and brushes were made.

Very informative. Attendants were extremely helpful. We lucked out and had a personal tour with one of the descendants who told us about growing up in Cedar Key.

The museum staff were pleasant and more than accommodating, making sure we knew all there was to see in town and the history of Cedar Key. There was a local resident who had lived and working Cedar Key his whole life who shared tidbits of the history and his life with us. Fascinating!
