What a great way to learn a little about the area. They did a very good job of displaying the items they have and the tags to explain the items were simple and to the point. I grew up in FL and never knew some of the industy they had in Cedar Key. It's located across the street from Tony's... More

All the information on the local area is unbelieveably interesting. You will learn more than you could have imagined. Extremely historic area of Florida.

Recommend making this your first stop when visiting Cedar Key. Lots of information, brochures, maps and other tourist items. Staff is very accommodating and friendly and the tour of the museum is informative as well. There is an additional charge for the tour but worth it.

This little museum is interesting in that with what few artifacts it displays, it proves that historically, there's been little/nil ethnic diversity in Cedar Key. ANY acknowledgement of that in this museum is minimal, at most. THAT's what's clear from this quaint little place. Artifact and event descriptions seem to give simple, broad-brushed versions of local happenings, especially the brief... More

Good greeting and kick off to a self timed walk through building. We went on Friday and got to meet Dr Anderson who was born in the second building a long time ago and who worked in the factory that his family owned a long time ago. Very interesting old Florida information. That an hour or 2 and learn a... More

A small museum that gives you a lot of history of Cedar Key. My husband and I found it very interesting. The woman working at the museum desk was very friendly and informative!

For a couple of dollars this Museum was worth the visit. Learned the history of the area, and like many other southern towns, prospered with the coming of the railroad, and pretty much died when the highway system began to dominate the form of travel.

This isn't another boring museum. While we were there, a gentleman operating the front desk gave the kids a great interactive story, getting them even more interested in history! There are some really wonderful items preserved here, including some original Civil War artifacts and other REALLY COOL items from the towns history involving pencils and brooms. Never knew some brooms... More

This local museum serves as a great introduction to the history of Cedar Key and the surrounding area. Anyone interested in the Florida Railroad, cedar and palm products industries and Gulf seafood will find something to explore here.
