This is a small very nice museum just off of 98 in Destin. The exhibits were first rate. The staff are volunteers who have lived their entire lives in Destin. They are very knowledgeable. The local fishing, fishing history, and pretty much anything of interest in the area they can tell you. There is a leader board and some videos of the annual fishing competition that takes place the entire month of october. Very reasonable admission. A few outside exhibits and the old post office building. I've been there twice and will go again.

Looking for a nice rainy day activity in Destin or are you just a lover of history? Then this is a must stop for you. It isn't a very large museum and it doesn't take long to walk through it but they have a lot of history here! You learn how Destin got started all the way to when it officially became a city (not until 1984). Ever wonder why the sand of Destin is white? They have an exhibit that explains the science behind it as well as why the water is emerald green. Don't miss the outdoor exhibits which include the original Destin post office which is full of history as well. I would definitely recommend any visitor of destin to stop here.

We often love to visit quirky little museums when we travel, and the Destin History & Fishing Museum did not disappoint. Not knowing much about the area, we were very pleasantly surprised to get a crash course in the Destin Fishing Rodeo. The museum has an entire room dedicated to this marvelous event, and two short films that give a crash course into the history and spectacle of this fascinating event that started out as a couple of days, but now takes up the entire month of October. Most impressive in the museum are the historical family artifacts from some of the founding families of Destin, and the impressive collection of locally caught fish mounts. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and hope that many more share our great experience.

Kathy Marler Blue is the executive director, and she has forgotten more about Destin than anyone else even knows. She is a treasure chest of information and very friendly. Make sure you swing by and see the early history of the World's Luckiest Fishing Village now known as Destin, Florida.
