This is a very well organized museum which tells the history of Florida from prehistoric through modern times. Everything is organized chronologically and it's chock full of information. Plus, you can't beat the price of admission: Free.

The archives are right inside this building-super easy to find. Parking was great. This is a great place for finding information, but also a nice museum for the family.
