Fabulous place to learn the history of old Homestead. Plenty of vintage photos on the walls, and antique fire engine, and of course the one and only Miss Ruth Campbell who can fill you in on MUCH of Homestead's past. It's a lovely place to visit and be educated!

This is a very nice little Museum in downtown Homestead showcasing all of Homestead's past. If you're interested in learning about how Homestead began, this is a must stop. Say hi to Ruth while you're there.

The museum is little and you can take a look around very quickly, and the best thing: it is for free! The lady at the front desk, Ruth, offered to give us a tour. She even took our picture in the firetruck. She was SUPER nice and sweet! There are even some toys at the expo that belonged to her.... More

We stopped in Homestead for a quick lunch on our way to Miami International and happened upon this place. The sweetest little lady was out front, so I had to see what she was up to because she looked so sweet. We stepped in and she immediately introduced herself and the little bit of history about Homestead. When she told... More

Homestead has lots of history. Full of charm. This Museum is free & worth the visit. The Seminole Theater was also recently remodeled and opened to new events. Is close by, take a walk & go see an event. Lots of places to eat near by too.

Weather you have lived in Homestead your whole life or are just passing through, this place has a lot of nostalgia that cannot be found anywhere else. It is free and I really loved seeing old pictures of my church, the hospital and the devastation from Hurricane Andrew which was too close to home! I would recommend popping in for... More

The owner is a cute little lady who takes so much pride in her museum. She will tell you stories you can't hear anywhere else. We learned about the hurricanes, the train tracks to the keys, even 9/11 and it's affects on the area. She was beaming with pride & she was the sweetest person to talk to. She gave... More

As in a previously mentioned reviews, Ms. Campbell was very informative. Sweet lady and has been here a long time. We visited about 4pm. The museum closes at 5pm so we were the only ones in at the time. There is various memorabilia there from photos of the early days, news and charts on hurricane Andrew, and a fire truck... More

Nice little place that you can see in about 20 minutes. Some books for sale and lots of pictures. If you are from the area, you'll appreciate the old pictures of Homestead and Miami. Really neat. But the neatest thing is speaking to Mrs. Campbell. Her family were pioneers in this area and she has some great stories. She's the... More
