An interesting museum with a very informative member of staff. The history of the hotels and tourism was good long with he time line of the town. Could do with being bigger.

This was my first visit. I have a glimpse of it in a video on my youtube channel (link in profile, look for Winter Park Museum Day). Very small with different exhibits. In the heart of Winter Park.

Very small

I was not sure that it's really s museum or some form of property for events. It's very small, only worth it if you've seen Winter Park and you're already there.

Lovely little museum!

This museum is 2 rooms but they pack a punch in their small space! I have seen some amazing exhibits in this place. They are constantly rotating the exhibits so you don’t get bored. The fee is nominal. Go visit today!

Small, expected more
Jun 2018 • Solo
I really expected for a town like Winter Park, which has a lot of resources, to have put a lot more effort into this museum. There is some good historical information inside. It is mostly historical pictures in a very large room, but I feel they could have done much more. Brooksville has a larger historical museum than Winter Park, and Brooksville doesn't have half the money of Winter Park.

Small museum, worth a visit

The historically museum shares a building used by the Saturday market and is worth taking the time to visit. The themes change and was about the home front in WW 2.

Well done exhibit
Jun 2017 • Couples
This museum is not a destination in itself, but a nice place to spend half an hour if you are in the area. They currently have an exhibit "The War Years" depicting life in Winter Park from 1941-1945. Rooms are set up as they would look during the era, with nice details, most things are available for you to touch. There is a small area for children to play as well. Great detail is given to Florida's part in the war, things that I did not know.

The museum is quite small and can easily be done in a short time, but there is no admission charge and easily walkable to the downtown area. They are not open every day, so check the website for hours.

Wonderful little museum, with the local angle. And very knowledgeable caretaker. Walking distance to our hotel and the park.

An oasis of folksy
Feb 2017 • Couples
This is a small museum, literally it's just one large room with all the exhibits. Despite its size however, it is a treasure trove of history mostly from the 40s chalked full of interesting information on the Second World War, replicas of planes, mannequins of solders, replicas of the kitchen and dining area, and books and magazines from that era. The only downside is that it doesn't really talk much about the history of Winter Park beyond that point in history. Perhaps someone could be generous to provide more space for the museum to grow.

Well worth the visit if you want to see what life in the 40s was like.

Worth a visit

Small Winter Park Museum with free admittance. There currently is a WWII exhibit of Winter Park during the war. Worth a visit if you want a break from shopping Park Avenue.
