A Bit of Culture

Small museum, but has some interesting things to know about the area from past years. Donation required, but worthy investment.

First off, the photo pictured is old. This whole building has been renovated. With wrap around porches, re-furbished garden area, in general lots of curb appeal. This museum always contains the history of Safety Harbor, Toccabaga Indians, and Odet Philippe, it's all very interesting, along with rotating displays in the other half. There's an indian burial mound located on the... More

Ritating exhibits feature Florida favorites like the Highwaymen from the 1950' s to the present. Nice break from the beach or... More

Not worth going out of the way for, unless you love antiques or archaeology. My husband quickly lost interest and waited for me outside. Small museum; can be seen in 1/2 hour. My favorite exhibit is temporary--"Rocket Man" sculpture out on the front lawn.

The tour that Scott gave us was full of information I never knew about. I learned so much and loved the old tools that he explained. Well worth the very small fee.

I can truthfully say there wasn't one thing I didn't like. I have been planning this wedding for over two years and it couldn't have come out any better. This place is truly the fountain of youth.

I wanted to go there to explore more about the history of Safety Harbor after their remodel. I had been there before the remodel and enjoyed it very much. Admission is a 'suggested' amount, but they give you the hairy eyeball if you don't pay. The 'museum' portion could fill my living room as they were trying to promote their... More

I was told that I would be disappointed if I stopped there because it was so little and they did not have much to show. I was disappointed especially when I had to pay that much for entrance. However, I enjoyed the plants and flowers around it.
