“Enjoyed Every Exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

This is a place to enjoy at your own pace. Each building is full of things of interest. The grounds are pleasantly homey and relaxing. Bring a picnic lunch if you like.

“Lots to see, very informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We pass by the Museum often and finally decided to stop and found out the next day they were having a train show so we went back. Glad we did! The Museum has a lot to see but in addition to visiting the museum and different houses they were making sugar cane syrup and showed the whole process.There were 2 girls walking around with Llamas and encouraging people to pet them.(which the children loved) The train show was also good but more for the train enthusiasts as it was more of a sale than a display. They have different events during the year but the museum itself is definitely worth the money.

A bit disappointed. We drove from New Port Richey to see the museum. It was raining at the time, I checked the website and it said they were opened. When we got there the girl behind the counter basically said she hadn't opened up any of the buildings because it was raining. We told her we drove a good distance to see it but she didn't seem to want to do anything. We were hoping even to be offered to look at the building we were in, but no such invitation. One question: are you open or not? Why not just close and put it on the website so we don't waste a trip. Don't know if we'll be back or not, would have loved to see it or even a portion of it. BTW, the rain cleared out in about an hour....

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It was 8 dollars for adults 4 dollars for children and 6 dollars for seniors (over 55's) unbelievably cheap and we think under priced. Even had on-site free parking. We went on a cold January day and there were only six other visitors there. There's loads of things to see from bygone days and you can wander round the different buildings at your leisure. It's not like modern museums - things are not behind glass and there aren't loads of information boards to read. It was half the price, had many more artefacts and was ten times more interesting than the modern Tampa museum which we also visited. There is an exhibition hall, an actual old school room, church, house, general store, station, etc. There's even a Pa's shed, and a Ma's shed as well as the old outside toilet. We think it offers a very nice way to spend a morning or afternoon and lose yourself in the past.

“Small and Limited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Easy to do see this place in a short amount of time. Not very big at all and exhibits are small and limited. Would not go out of my way to return.
