    Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not a big place, but lots of interesting history on display. Plenty of local information, too, if you need it (hotels, restaurants, excursions...).

    Amazing museum content, especially for a town of 800!

    If you come to Cedar Key make it a point to visit the Historical Society Museum. There is a lot of fascinating history in this area, and the museum is a wonderful place to learn about it. Plan on spending a couple of hours exploring the nicely organized exhibits showing the way time has changed the town over the years.

    At only $3 a person what a wonderful way to spend an afternoon after lunch. Cedar Key has much in the way of Civil War history. John Muir traveled to Cedar Key on his thousand mile walk. One of the locals made some incredible models of ships, fishing boats, sponge boats, the railroad through Cedar Key and the lighthouse. Cedar pencils and whisk brooms were huge industries in Cedar Key. The Eagle Pencil Cedar Mill and Eberhard Fabor pencil mill and the Standard Manufacturing whisk broom company were once large producers of manufacturing products. We will have to visit the Historical Society again. For a small place like Cedar Key they sure have lots of interesting history. The docent was knowledgeable and very helpful. I bought several books, pencils, mints and postcards for myself and gifts for friends. Heck it is for a good cause, I liked the books and the trinkets will make great gifts.
