Such a cool little place. It is nice to visit walk around and see some historic information. It was not as informative as I hoped so if you are not a big history person but want to do something that feel educational this is your spot. 20 minutes and you learn something and can move on with your day.

Started at the museum, the employee was very knowledgeable, friendly n seemed to enjoy her role in teaching us about Cedar Key. We were fortunate enough to meet Dr. Andrews in the second building, his childhood home. He walked us thru family n their business history.

Small but person there is very knowledgeable about the history of Cedar Key. Very interesting and the owner of the home that you see behind the museum was there to give a tour.

The pictures and history go well back into the 19th century. The local history buffs had done well to collect old documents and photographs. There are local genealogy documents. One photo motivated a visit to the cemetery, well outside of town. We enjoyed the museum and we enjoyed the cemetery. Next to the museum there is a house museum that... More

The museum tells you the story of Cedar Key - which was originally on a different key! Very old artifacts dating to the BC era and brings you into the 21 century. Not for kids, but great for those that enjoy seeing how the town emerged

This is an inexpensive but informative way to spend a warm summer afternoon. We really enjoyed learning about the history of Cedar Key and the industries for which it was once famous. We knew about the cedar pencils but spent an hour learning about brushes made from cabbage palm fibers. It is definitely worth spending a few dollars to help... More
