Very informative museum. We had taken a boat tour of the area the day before so knew some of the details. Everything is very well displayed and marked. We really enjoyed it and it only cost $3 per person. It was worth it.

Very nice museum with interesting displays. A must see when you are visiting Cedar Key! We thought it was an exceptional value, having paid more for less at similar sized museums.

Very nice display of natural items (I especially liked the shells) and artifacts. Amazed by the salt kettle out side.

Packed with so much interesting history about the once bustling Cedar Key and surrounds. Wish we’d spent more time there!

We like museums. This one is only open from 1 to 4 pm, but it was worth the admission price. It includes their main building where the museum is, and a restored house that shows how life was lived in Cedar Key, FL.
