Great side trip
Aug 2020 • Couples
It was open 8/1/20, and worth the trip. During CoVid, call to check times it’s open. Masks were required inside.The $2 each was a small price to pay for a big adventure. Joe, who was masked, took our admission fees. He was friendly and shared a lot of information with us. We also took a map of the museum and a map for the Cracker House, which Joe told us was built in 1860s - original house except for roof.

We only had 30 minutes to look around the museum and house. In the museum, we read as many of the informative displays as we could. We enjoyed the exhibits with stuffed animals and signs identifying them. Outside, we toured all of the house’s rooms and buildings. Beautiful and well created!

This is a perfect place to take the family, to learn about FL history, and be proud of our roots.

Fun and interesting

The homestead was fun to walk through. It is small, but interesting and informative about the period. It doesn’t take long to wlak through, but worth the stop if you in the area.

Don't pass this one by

Drove past & turned back after seeing sign & well worth the u-turn. Nice museum relating Florida history, from native peoples through pioneer settlement. The grounds are very pleasant & the tour of the historic dog-trot cabin & outbuildings make for a feeling that one has stepped back in time. Great picnic spot.

What a neat little museum! The grounds are well kept and the exhibits are simple but engaging. The small exhibit hall has a bunch of information about the history of the area and the then booming Cypress industry.

Small but unique

I have been to the Forest Capital Museum many times and it is quite interesting. It is very interesting to see how people in this area lived 100 years ago.

Cute and inexpensive for an interesting couple of hours
Sep 2017 • Family
This place is an inexpensive and interesting treat to kill a couple of hours...not something you really want to go out of your way to visit...but if you are in the area and have some free time, there are interesting exhibits for all ages.

Nice picnic spot
Aug 2017 • Couples
The picnic pavilions were the perfect spot to have lunch. We picked up some food at a grocery store in a town south of Perry and were able to eat outside in spite of the heat thanks to the shade of the trees and cover of the pavilion.

Nice Clean Park. Handicapped friendly, small but quaint museum. Staff very friendly and knowledgible about local history
Jun 2017
It was an interesting place to visit. All the buildings are close to each others. It is in a nice park and close to the Perry airport. If you are a general aviation pilot, you can fly in and walk to the Museum. Nice places to dine are close by.
