This is one of the best history museums I have ever been to - it covered all aspects of Winter Garden's history in a way that was informative and interesting to people of all ages.

The museum contains three rooms of exhibits and artifacts. It's located on the main thoroughfare and is walking distance to area restaurants and shops. Nice place to stop by when you're in the area.

The lady gave us an individual tour of the old desks, cash register, plowing equipment, post offices supplies and much more from way back Wintergarden. Very friendly, free, worth the visit

The museum is still a work in progress. A nice facility with a good depiction of the town and area 's history. Super nice staff. I am confident the museum will only get better as they continue to develop it.

This place is great for children to learn all about trains and the volunteers love to speak to them about it. They are great with kids and keep them entertained. They had a little area upstairs that the kids can play with toy trains themselves....More

We visited the farmers market on a Saturday morning and then took a stroll. We went to see the fire truck and snap a few picture when I bumped into the museum. It a great spot to learn the history of Central Florida.
