Stopped in to find direction and about local golf cources. In both cases I found out more about the area from the internet. I felt if I was from the south I would have been treater better or at least with respect.

My wife and I loved the Osceola county welcome center. It's a museum free to the public, that gives you an excellent perspective of the history of the region. Many hands on exhibits for kids including seeing alligators and sitting on a saddle. It's possible to walk through the center quickly, but if you take the time to read all... More

Osceola County Welcome Station includes the history of the county and many exhibits. Maps and information are readily available as well as a small gift shop. Just outside is 1.6 mile hiking trail to the pioneer village. Kayak and bike rentals just across the street via an underground passage.

The Staff is very friendly and can offer good suggestions about local events and some of the restaurants. The Museum is small and easy to tour in a short time. Several families with young children visited both times we were there for information, coupons and a free welcoming gift (usually a pen).

Meeting a friend in Kissimmee FL for the afternoon, we decided to go to the Welcome Center and check out the Museum. We had a blast. The volunteers there were so helpful and we were given a list of questions to try and find different things at the exhibit. My children and their families would have loved doing that -... More

Nice people go out of their way to welcome you. I was taking pictures and when I transferred them to my computer I thought I was going to have to call Ghost Hunters. There was a man standing by a tree in an exhibit That I did not see when I took the picture. Went back the next day and... More

My boyfriend and I decided to check is out. When I got in I asked how much it cost and I was told it is free but they take donations. So I gave the guy 2.00 but he told me to put it in a plastic box. It is not real huge inside but they have animals that look real... More

Just across the road from Shingle Creek Park, this nicely presented and interesting educational centre taught us a lot about Florida, such as the history from 1880 when 4 million acres of Florida was sold to Hamilton Disston for a million dollars. See, I remembered it!! We also learned about Chief Osceola, and how the county is now named after... More
