Small but mighty interesting
Jan 2021
Staff was very excited about the museum and knew her stuff, loves to talk about the business and fruit.
Museum is small, but well done, marked with explanatory signs and lots of artifacts.
Wonderful old building
FREE to go in but leave them a few bucks in the jar, they are having a hard time getting by.

Great for what it is!
Feb 2020
This is a very small museum packed full of interesting stuff. Our hostess (tour guide?) greeted us at the front door & gave us about 15 minutes worth of wonderful local history, general information on citrus worldwide, & information specific to citrus grown in the copyrighted Indian River Citrus area. Then, we were free to wander the remainder of the displays. The layout was simple - just a rectangular room with a center display area - but the displays were such that it didn't feel cramped or overstuffed. We learned a great deal about the area, & were impressed with our guide's knowledge & enthusiasm. There is no admission fee, but there is a donation jar on the "gift shop" counter, & they have various items of interest for sale. (We bought postcards & marmalade!)

Stopped by 3 times this week, and several times in the past few years. Posting hours outside the door would be helpful. I’ve had difficulty with their website.

Stop by if you have a few minutes.

We had a very interesting presentation given to us about the history of citrus growers in the Indian River growing area. This tiny museum is full of old photographs and equipment, all items used in citrus production. A small sample of delicious juice delivered from a local grower on the same day was provided. A few gift items are available, like wonderful square postcards with artwork from citrus crates of days-gone-by. This is mostly a museum, not a gift shop, and the well-versed staff made it a worthwhile stop and very enjoyable.

Interesting one-room Museum

the Citrus Museum is a room Museum. However the docent and her excellent narration of what it means to be Indian River citrus and history of it made visit fascinating. Good way to spend 45 minutes while you're in the area.

Lots to see in a small space

The experience was pleasant from the beginning. Two enthusiastic volunteers gave us an overview of the Indian River Citrus location and history. A tour of the museum provided insight into several items, especially the grading and packing of the local citrus. Displays showed how the crates were built, and expecially how they were marked, the labels being an important, interesting, and artistic part of the process. Also interesting to see that Waldo Sexton, founder of Driftwood Inn and major player in McKee Gardens, had a major role in early citrus commercel

small museum but mighty experience

The personal tour of the one-room museum was fascinating - we learned so much. We also appreciated the recommendation of a tour at a local citrus packing house. A great example of good things coming in small packages.
