The Indian Temple Mound park is a very nice little park with exhibits detailing the history of the area regarding the early American Indian tribes from the area (who built the mound on the site). Located at the convergence of Highway 98 and Highway 85, the park is easily accessible and convenient to anyone in Fort Walton Beach and Destin.... More

This museum is small but has quite excellent displays and is well worth seeing. Along with the Indian displays, there is a nice little gift shop and an old fashioned school house to visit.

About $5 for essentially one display room. There is a nice display of pottery and some historical perspective on American Indian history in general and the area specifically, but essentially you could get all the info off their webpage. Understand they are trying to pay for it likely without a lot of tax dollars but you do not get a... More

We enjoyed this stop as a visit on vacation in Ft. Walton Beach. Small fee of $5 per adult, $3 per child. The speaker in the schoolhouse site was extremely informative. He def knew what he was talking about and had alot to share. The Civil War bldg. was closed the day we visited, so that was disappointing for my... More

The museum itself had some interesting items, but the other 3 buildings were not open. Was told we could come back in a couple of hours when those buildings opened if we kept our receipt. Not worth the trouble of going back. If you have to pay, all exhibits should be open at the same time.

This museum is such a great attraction to the Emerald coast and Florida in general. I never knew that there were so many interesting things to learn about the early years along the Gulf Coast. This museum may be small, but there are some amazing artifacts and exhibits to be seen here. I highly recommend to everyone, a visit to... More

This is a very small museum and small outdoor area to explore. I would recommend have this as a part of a day trip including something else like lunch or another park. If you enjoy history it is worth a stop to see something different. If you are not into history you probably won't be that interested. There are a... More
