“Only free n educational place here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Who wouldn't just fall head over heels for this museum! It is full of juicey tid bits of our history. My momma use to live a few blocks from here and she swears by this hidden gem. The only down side is that since it's free and operated by volunteers they do close quite early.

“Be sure to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

For years, my mom was a volunteer in the "back room" of this church-turned-museum. She and the other "back room girls" spent their hours preserving volumes of photos and documents and creating new exhibits. If you love old photographs and memorabilia and want some deep local flavor, don't miss it. The dedicated volunteers and docents love what they are doing and you will leave with a richer experience and knowledge of the Gulf Beaches

Nicely curated collections in a former historic church. Has a room devoted to WW II memorabilia and posters. Main display is a photo and artifact time line of local history.
