A small museum loaded with great and interesting history of Cedar Key. Cedar Key was once a very busy and popular little Florida town. Definitely worth the time and money.

The museum had a lot of beautifully preserved artifacts. Talks a lot about the local history. There is a very small donation that is required to enter but it’s a must-see.

We visited my wife’s ancestral home and learned so much. We will be back again and again. The museum has done a lot to preserve the information with care. It is like going back in time. Very educational for the children.

It was very interesting to walk around and learn about the local history. The place was small enough that you could see everything in an hour or so but still very informative.
