I've lived in Orlando for years and never heard of, or visited, this Fort Christmas park. We recently went for the Bluegrass Festival, and I was extremely impressed by this park. It is like an open air museum (except for living characters), with several old Florida houses, the fort itself, farming tools, and a home from the 1950s. All the... More

Seven restored pioneer homes, all originally from the local area and moved and reconstructed on this five acre site. You could easily spend a half day here and you probably need more. The homes have a poster outside depicting the history of the property along with notes of the family who originally owned and built them. Inside are many artefacts... More

We enjoyed touring the museum and learning about how the earlier settlers lived in Florida. History about the Indian relationships, citrus, cattle, farming, etc. Many displays from clothing, "cracker home", Fort Christmas, sugar cane press, etc. Worth the trip!

This was a great place. The homes and school there have the correct era items. Loved it! Pavilions for picnics, bathrooms, basketball court and softball field.

Make sure you don't visit Fort Christmas on a Monday, because it will be closed. This was our mistake, but we went back on another day, and had a great afternoon out. The museum is very interesting and informative, It gives a good insite into Central Florida's history, including the Seminole wars, and slavery in the area. The staff were... More

We've been to Fort Christmas twice now. The first time was in the Spring without much planning - and we found it was closed on Mondays. This last time, we planned to be there for the Cracker Christmas Festival. There were numerous craft and food vendors along with the historical reenactments and demonstrations. We brought our Christmas cards with us... More

It's still free and great for kids. They have many old houses from late 1800's to maybe 1950, decorated for the time period. Each house has information about a family that lived previously in the house. When I first moved to Florida in 1966, before their was a museum; I would drive to Christmas to mail Christmas cards, they had... More

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
