Quaint little musuem with a nice collection of history & artifacts of Safety Harbor. It is free but donations are accepted. They have woodworking, jewelry making & zen brush workshops.

This tiny historical museum serves its' residents and visitors very weel as it relates the Safety Harbor story from Native Americans to Phillippe who brought the grapefruit to the 1920,s Safety Harbor Resort and spa located over hot springs. Ritating exhibits feature Florida favorites like the Highwaymen from the 1950' s to the present. Nice break from the beach or... More

Not worth going out of the way for, unless you love antiques or archaeology. My husband quickly lost interest and waited for me outside. Small museum; can be seen in 1/2 hour. My favorite exhibit is temporary--"Rocket Man" sculpture out on the front lawn.

The tour that Scott gave us was full of information I never knew about. I learned so much and loved the old tools that he explained. Well worth the very small fee.

I can truthfully say there wasn't one thing I didn't like. I have been planning this wedding for over two years and it couldn't have come out any better. This place is truly the fountain of youth.

I wanted to go there to explore more about the history of Safety Harbor after their remodel. I had been there before the remodel and enjoyed it very much. Admission is a 'suggested' amount, but they give you the hairy eyeball if you don't pay. The 'museum' portion could fill my living room as they were trying to promote their... More

I was told that I would be disappointed if I stopped there because it was so little and they did not have much to show. I was disappointed especially when I had to pay that much for entrance. However, I enjoyed the plants and flowers around it.

This museum offers a lot of history for this area. You feel like you are stepping back in time. And you definitely look at things a little different once you come out.

Visited the museum on a bad-beach day. Didn't expect much, but was very impressed. Not a large museum, but they use their space to best advantage. It's only a $4.00 admission (donation). There are impressive dioramas of the natives, the Tocobaga, in various activities as well as a remnant of a dugout canoe. There is also an impressive array of... More
