I decided to take my kids after reading reviews, but had very low expectations going in. Boy was I wrong! It was much bigger than I had imagined and had one great, informational and hands-on exhibit after another. We could have stayed another hour but had to leave because museum closed at 4:30p. Highly recommend this attraction!

Get your fill of Florida history here. Plenty to read and see. Kids can appreciate it too because there are hands-on areas for them to roam and explore. Gift shop has wide variety of books and trinkets and there is sandwich shop so you can take a break.

"Free" is in quotes because there is a suggested donation...it is not required, however, and visiting the museum will give you a token for free parking.

There's not much to say that the other reviewers haven't already: this museum is a great place to spend a few hours. There's a lot of informative displays and the layout is very nice. Some creative areas include the inside of an orange farm building, riverboat, and an upstairs area called "Grandma's attic" which is a really fun place for kids to play, which has a video feed showing on an old style television downstairs so parents can keep on eye on the kids.

An accredited museum that thoughtfully portrays the history of Florida with permanent and revolving exhibits. Don't miss the latest permanent exhibit, La Florida, Forever Changed which features rare artifacts from Florida's rich heritage as well as amazing artisan-created reproductions that are all thoughtfully interpreted for the average to above-average visitor.

I have visited this museum several times over the last 15 years and I always enjoy it. And best of all, it's FREE!
