Went here on a whim with my two girls, ages 4 and 9. First of all, it's FREE and they really could charge admission for the quality of presentation. Many houses completely decorated as the time when they were built from 1870 to 1950 to get a glimpse of old cow and cracker Florida. Had a great couple of hours... More

First note is that this is probably best with kids. Not ADA in any aspect, so if you need paved paths or ramps, skip this. In addition to the buildings there is a large playground. Some interesting artifacts in the fort, including a historic dugout canoe. The old homes have a lot of vintage stuff, though it seems like they... More

Travelled 60 miles to this place, and thought it was worth the drive. It is a self guided tour round buildings which have been moved from various places to one location . Each of the buildings has information boards telling you both about the building and the families that lived in them. Each is decorated with period pieces so you... More

I have lived in the area for 25 years & I've driven through Christmas at least 100 times. I always envisioned the Ft Christmas Museum as a gift shop with a few displays on the local history. Wrong, Wrong, Wrong............... The replica fort is quite large and houses an extensive collection of tools, guns, farming equipment, etc. But the highlight... More

Interesting little stop in Christmas, Florida. My boys loved the replica fort. The old settlers homes were very nice.

I have been there several times over the years and it never gets boring..I've learned something new every time! Great place for couples or for the whole family ! Step back in time and "visit" with the settlers of this area. Tour the many buildings that were the homes of the early area residents. So much to see and read... More

There is a nice park and play area for the kids along with the replica fort and lots of items from the old fort which some of our company loved looking at, they have moved a lot of old cracker homes onto the park and it is fun to see "how they used to live"

It is quite small but very informational and historical. I wanted to show the children what it was like to live back in the early 1900's. They seemed very interested. Worth a short stop!

I have four boys ranging in ages from 2-10. Two of which are boy scouts. My husband stopped as a surprise on our way to the beach. The Fort was really interesting with a lot of original pieces and homes in Christmas. There was a lot of family history as well. My husband and boys really enjoyed walking through the... More
