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

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.

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.

It might appear small but it has a lot to offer as a great insight into the local area around Winter Garden and the Orange growing business. Very pleasant greeting on arrival and lots of local history also verbally shared whilst we were there. It was free but you just had to give a donation,

Who knew there was so much history in a small town of Central Florida? Native Indian remains are found here. Rubber tires were first put on tractors here. Lake Apopka was once a major tourist attraction for bass fishing. More citrus was shipped from Winter Garden than anywhere in the country at one point. I could say more! Delightful museum... More

Small, but has a lot of interesting information. Got great pictures of my family on some of the old tractors.

The museum includes artifacts from the area. You can also listen to short recordings such as why the orange groves moved further south in the state.
