Ok.... Misleading title, but the ladies at the welcome desk offered such a warm welcome - with a bit of fun banter thrown in. Interesting, if condensed, look at Central Floridas early history, and some great pieces in the collections as well (I tried to let 'The Girls' let me take the 1920's Buddy L bus; they wouldn't). Step out... More

We were at the monthly car show in downtown and decided to take the grandsons into the Museum and we were pleasantly surprised. Not only was it free and very informative but it also had a little "activity" paper for the boys. The man at the desk was very nice and friendly also.

This is a small museum, but good. There is no charge and we were greeted by a well knowledgeable volunteer. The museum is only 3 rooms but they are jam packed full of stuff. They had this fun game for my kids to play finding items in the museum. With playing in the caboose outside and looking in the museum... More

Very impressed with my first visit to this museum. For starters, the volunteer who greeted me was super friendly and knew a ton about Winter Garden and its history. I was shocked to find admission is FREE (They do appreciate tips tho). There's a great movie to get you started. Tons of memorabilia, a caboose to explore outside, and a... More

I went here with friends and was delighted with the way the museum was set out and the information given in each of the exhibition rooms, well worth the visit!

We happened to be in downtown for a walk on the West Orange Trail and stop at Axum Coffee and decided to pop into the museum as we walked by. There's no charge but plenty of interesting local history. Winter Garden natives take great pride in their community and that is evident in this little museum which will soon be... More

This was fun to pop into, and see some of the artifacts that had been discovered in the area. The citrus history room was nicely laid out. The hostess was very nice, and greeted us warmly. School children were coming in for an assignment that had, so she was very quick to help them all. There's a kumquat tree in... More

Pleasant little museum full of interesting artefacts and information about the area. The curator was a very pleasant and helpful lady who was quite chatty and informative. No entry fee, but donations welcomed.
