“Worth A Visit For History Buffs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This small Museum (proper name: "Winter Park History Museum") near the park is worth seeing if you are curious about such things, and is small enough that you an take it in without disrupting your other plans to a great extent. Don't bother if the history of Winter Park is of no interest to you.

We particularly enjoyed the postcard, telephone, and public schools collections. They also distribute a brochure that maps out a walking tour of sites of historical interest in the area. It's an interesting tour and worth doing as much of the walk as possible if you have any interest in the topic.

“Eh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

While the building is very small, it could be offset by outstanding displays, galleries or materials -- which it is lacking. This one-room museum should be revamped.

“Very informative and educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

There was so much to see and the staff member on duty was very knowledgeable and also grew up there and now lives there permanently, after having been away for a while. It is nice to actual read and see how the town grew over the years and what the new plans were for the future also. A must see!!!

Current display features the Winter Park High School classes. Come remember the past if you grew up in Winter Park.
