Small but very informative

Take a few minutes to visit NSB's Museum of History telling the story of NSB's past along with information on surfing in the area.

Excellent Local History Museum
Mar 2020
New Smyrna's Museum of History puts forth an excellent account of the local area and its role in the history of this area of Florida, but you should also be aware of the four walking tours that are offered through the course of the week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, with a different tour on each day. These tours cost $12, start at 10:30 a.m. and generally last about 1.5 hours. They may involve walking as far as one mile. The tours are small groups, limited to about 12 attendees.

Unfortunately, Coronavirus restrictions have closed the museum and tours for now, but be sure to visit or tour here when they are able to reopen.

The museum is located just off historic Canal Street, close to the weekly Farmer's Market area.

Highly Recommended!

Wonderful place to visit
Mar 2020
We go here quite often mostly for their lectures on history and archeology. Volunteers do a great job. Programs are varied and interesting. Highly recommend coming early and browse the museum and little book store.

So much history in our little town!
Dec 2019
Very well put together museum that tells the story of New Smyrna Beach from its beginnings - with self guided displays of the history of New Smyrna Beach. Little known fact is that our town is actually older than St. Augustine. Lots of old pictures, original letters, and interesting artifacts from native Americans and the pioneers who came after. Conveniently located just off Canal St. shopping.

If You Live or Visit New Smyrna, 2nd Oldest City in the US, Pay a Visit
Jan 2020
The volunteers who greet you when you enter bring to life the history of New Smyrna Beach (NSB). Some say NSB is the oldest city in the United States, not the other place. Take a look and decide for yourself.

The admission is whatever you care to donate.

This is a great place to visit when you come to town.

We couldn't believe the history of NSB. This is a wonderful museum and added so much to our understanding of the region.

Local gem!
Jan 2020
This is a great little museum with self guided displays of the history of New Smyrna Beach. Little known fact is that this tiny coastal town is actually older than St. Augustine. Lots of old pictures, original letters, and interesting artifacts from native Americans and the pioneers who came after. Conveniently located in the Canal St. shopping & dining district, Definitely worth a stop!

Patty, Thank you so much for visiting our Museum and for your kind review. We are always excited to have visitors that enjoy learning the story of Florida's British Colonial time period and our beginnings here in New Smyrna Beach during . The city of St. Augustine does actually hold the record for being the oldest city however, predating New Smyrna Beach by about 200 years. We hope to see here at the museum again soon!

Fun Museum
Jan 2020
They have done an excellent job of displaying the history of NSB!! Went to the lecture on oranges and very well attended (over 40 people). Found the talk very enlightening. Learned a lot about history of not only oranges but more about NSB

Dec 2019
This hidden gem is worth the stop. There artifacts and pictures to illustrate the live and times of this community. There are two movies that are "must sees" ti get the full flavor of how the community was developed and allows you to appreciate the challenges the people encountered.

Florida has a lot of history--most people pass it by
Jan 2019
It's been a few years since I've been here, but the collections cover the history of this area going back hundreds of years. Well displayed and explained, the museum will introduce most people to Old Florida. It's a lot more than Disney World!
