  • As a resident in Manatee County the Historical Park is a wonderful stop on your learning about our county and the history that exists in Manatee County. There is a great museum to visit as well as a gift shop on site for keepsakes. I would highly recommend stopping in to visit. It is highly likely you learn something interesting about Manatee Counties history.
  • I really liked this history museum. I may have seen better and larger ones, but rarely have I seen one this nice that is 100% free. I spent about an hour here really going over all of the descriptions. Very friendly folks here.
  • Cool place to go and chill. Took the kids they enjoyed it. Small doesn't take allot of time to go through everything. Had a picnic there and kids played on playground after looking at everything.
  • Good spot to bring a lunch to. Interesting place to see. Worth an hour of your time. It's free as well, though a donation of a few dollars is suggested.
  • Real Florida, lots to see and the right price for the time spent. Sometimes there are recreators so check for events​. Combine it with a trip to Obrien and Hunsader farms.
