We went to this museum when we first move to Florida in 1995. It was ok then but has been improved so much that it is now a great little museum. It's all about the area and the first settlers.

local museums can be boring to outsiders, but this one isn't. It is beautifully done to interest both adults and children with interactive displays and dioramas. My husband said it was the most interesting attraction in the area. Cost was minimum.

Good personnel audio devices given to each of us. For seniors, it only cost $3 to get in and see the displays, which were very good. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Both my wife and I enjoyed the hour we spent there.
