“Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014 NEW

What a delightful town! Its best asset, however, are its people, who give new meaning to the concept of charming. Can't wait to return.

“Great Resource for Local History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014

This is a delightful little museum which strives to preserve a lot of local history. I particularly enjoyed the displays about the local yacht club and boat builders. It is beautifully cared for and housed in the old Railway Station right on Main Street.

“Big History in Small City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Having grown up in Dunedin, and living here now, I am always interested in the many events and people of this city's past. Located in the former train station, the museum takes me back to my early years and well beyond. The exhibits are always interesting, entertaining, and informative. They feature special exhibits relating Dunedin to other communities' history.
There's really more to see in the museum than one might think, and I always enjoy browsing through all the displays.
It truly is a rewarding experience traveling through Dunedin's history, and the folks who operate this museum know how to make it interesting.
The museum is located right along the Pinellas Trail on Main Street, and is in the heart of one of the most awesome small-city downtown areas you will find... with shops, restaurants, parks, and the marina all within a short walking distance.

“Great Pirate Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This museum currently has a pirate exhibit from Key West on display. Pay the $2 donation fee to enter, you will enjoy this exhibit immensely. I always pop into this museum while visiting Dunedin, great place to visit & explore!!
