A sneaky opportunity for the kids to learn, this local museum is in the quaint downtown and features a to scale model of the beach before the high rises came in. LOVE it.

This building was where Florida Bank and Trust was housed. I worked there in 1963 so this visit was extremely nostalgic for me as one of the first displays was about the bank's history. All the displays are nicely done and covers a variety of topics concerning Daytona & Volusia County.

This museum is located in the former premises of a bank which opened a few years before WW1.
The visit starts with a 25 minutes video (SD format, shown on an old big CRT screen). Interesting video, focused on North-Eastern Florida history throughout ages. Beware that kids may find it tedious.
The exhibits encompass some artifacts from Timucuan Indians and Spanish first settlers.
For the rest, it is mainly memorabilia, or a toy collection (with limited interest) upstairs.

Overall, not worth a detour, but good for a 1 hr visit if in the area

The model of the old Daytona Boardwalk and the Golden Age Ormond hotel are both completely worth missing an hour or two of beach time. Pick up a gift from here in lieu of the average beach souvenir.

Take 45-60 minutes and learn about the area.
Lots of interesting artifacts about early life in Daytona and the area.
Great for scouts and small groups too. If arranged ahead fo time the staff will really take care of you.
