  • Very very friendly people work there it was very informative. I had no idea how much history there was in Florida. Had a great time period took a short walk on the nature trail. When it's cooler I will go back for a longer walk the place is awesome
  • Great exhibits, about Brevard County as well as other areas of Florida. Well worth the hour and a half time spent there. The Nature Trail was paved and made it easy to explore for another 20 minutes.
  • my kids love it. Small museum but very interesting
  • Quaint historical museum. There was a exhibit on black history in Florida that taught me some things about Florida history I didn't know.
  • It's an older building with a lot of old exhibits, however it is packed full of information about the history of BREVARD County, especially touching on the Space program, NASA, Ocean wildlife, and dinosaurs.
