It's been a while since I've been, but the museum doesn't change much. I've been visiting every few years since 1989 or 90, starting with field trips as a child to the occasional visit with my husband, just for fun. The museum covers prehistoric times...More

The history of Florida in one place. Experience and see what Florida was like from the pre-human times to the present. See the major events that affected Florida from the Spanish settlements to the Civil War to modern day Florida.

Follow along through room after room with displays and artifacts going back from perehistoric times to recent decades. A blast from the past in an air conditioned area. Perfect for a hot summer day adventure - and free too.

I'm not much of a museum person, but my husband is. I was actually pleasantly surprised how interesting this museum was and how much there was to see. If you are in town, check it out, it's free.

Very historic and fun time. As a new Floridian, I wanted to learn about my new home state. I liked it - but many of the exhibits, and the physical venue need to be updated.

it all depends on your level of interest in the various exhibits, as others have aptly described. 3-4 hours would be completely adequate, I'd think. that would include time-outs for a snack and some sit down time to relax... More
