“A great outdoors museum!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This was an amazing museum, and all outside. For a few dollars you can purchase a "magazine" which contains the location of over 40 murals, a description of each and a picture. From that the fun begins as you explore the downtown Lake Placid area.

Each time we found a mural we were struck with awe on how this incredible "painting" is on the side of a building and provides a glimpse into the history of Lake Placid. A must-do activity if you love history.

“A Nice Way To Break Up The Drive”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We needed a rest stop while driving from Port St. Lucie to Tampa. Came across Lake Placid and their murals while doing some research. Lake Placid is your typical quiet, southern town with very friendly citizens. The Chamber has a nice booklet of all the murals, back story and a map. It really helped explain the murals. if you are traveling with children the book even has a "find the hidden items" game for each mural.

The murals are very nice and are reflect the history and culture of the area. Be prepared to do some walking. The murals are scattered all over town.

It would be nice if there were more benches in shaded areas, and maybe some water fountains. It does get a little warm even in March.

“Great Location”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

these huge colorful, larger than life murals are so amazing to look at and what a perfect location. Picture a small home town were downtown has these beautiful murals every where you look. This small town is Lake Placid and while very tranquil there is still something for all ages and you will be sure to leave relaxed! I know we did!
