Really enjoyed our visit to this museum. Leaned a lot about this area of Florida and particularly enjoyed the Windover exhibit. There is a little bit of everything at this museum including space expoloration and lighthouses. Quite a nice hidden gem and very interesting.

It's good for something to do but the areas for kids are not maintained and not much fun. If the treehouse and shuttle areas were kept clean and stocked it would be better. The workers aren't exactly warm and friendly either.
