This is a must see when visiting Cedar Key. Lots of history and pictures showing the history of the area. The Docent was so helpful and fun. We actually met an older gentleman 92 years young who gave us a special tour recalling his days as a youngster in the region. Facinating stuff.

We had driven an house to go to Steak house, which we waited over 15 minutes and no service. They were busy Finally we decided to walk to the hotel. We always get great service. They are friendly and always say come again.Should have gone there first.But I enjoy over looking the water and steak.

Just another great way to spend the day. They have walking tour maps you can use all over the town. My kids love visiting just for the best fun things to do.

Touring this museum gives you the full history of Cedar Key and is very interesting. It is set up with 2 rooms of exhibits and, additionally, a home from the earlier time frame that was moved from another part of the island. To get the full scoop on this town, make sure you visit the museum on Second St.

They had quite a few exhibits detailing the history of Cedar Key. Nothing too special though. I liked the the information on the brush factory and the replica brushes you can buy made of cabbage palm fibers although they were a bit expensive.

On our last visit to Cedar Key, we took the time to visit the Historical Society Museum. We are so glad we did! Doreen Bauer welcomed us. She was so friendly and a wealth of information.

We stopped in and the back part that had the Palm brush history was so interesting. Great place to take the kids to teach them about when things were not made of garbage in some Chinese dump. Wonderful.
