History brought to life by local volunteers
Oct 2021 • Friends
Mom and I were fortunate to visit when two long-time residents were volunteering. Billy and Sharon had personal stories to accompany the exhibits and made history literally come to life. It was fascinating to learn about the progression of development but also the area’s roles and responses to national and world events. Truly time well spent.

Worth an Hour Visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
We stopped in on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. The building is an old beach cottage that was relocated (twice) and is filled with the history of this part of the world, from the native Americans thru the 1990’s or so. The guide is a talkative retired school teacher and area native; who knew that the area just south of Clearwater Beach was a bombing range in WWII ?!? Don’t think it’s open Monday or Tuesday. Public restrooms, free, and recommended.

Well done!
Jan 2020
Nice stop to see early days of this area. Nice Collection of memorabilia. Area postcards were of interest to me and they didn't disappoint. The building recreates the cottage kitchen, back in the day. Overall well done. Don't need much time but a great overview. Volunteer run, and very friendly. Boxes on walls for a donation. Good visit and would encourage others to stop in. (Just behind the CVS, where I bought my bus pass--the bus service in this area is excellent!) Also, area bus stop in front of this building.

Neat little place for local nhistory istory
May 2019
Just happened to go in out of curiosity. The museum is in an old Florida beach house so architecturally it's cool, it then add in all the info on the area and it makes for a good break from the heat. It is small, so we were through it in less than an hour, but the docents were very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had.

A "must see" if your interested in the history of Indian Rocks Beach. All the great stuff about the Big Indian Rocks Pier,and Tiki Gardens was just wonderful! Don't miss it!

Makes you wish for the “good old days”
Jun 2019 • Couples
A quick stop - doesn’t take long. Pictures and displays take you back to the beginning of IRB. Very well done. Enjoyed comparing beach side living and vacationing over the years. Limited open hours- parking around the corner- doesn’t take long- then head over to The Original Crabby Bills for a bite to eat and $1.50 Yuenglings- that’s what we did! Museum is free- just drop a fiver in the donation box...

Cozy & Modest Museum
Apr 2019 • Friends
Free admission but donations are most welcomed here which we generously did during our leisurely pace self-guided tour. It is both a cozy and modest museum which explains the local history plus developments as a beach community since the 1800's. Various artifacts and displays will inform you and give you insights into how the locals lived. Person on duty to welcome you and answer any questions. There was one lady visiting this museum from Austin, Texas. Some windows are being replaced but must meet locally historical standards set by local building codes for such aged sensitive buildings/ Free parking in the area and has a small gift shop.
