  • The A. E. Backus Museum is one of Fort Pierce, FL best treasures. Located in the downtown district this museum should be on every visitors to-do agenda. They have the largest permanent collection of works from A. E. Backus as well as rotating shows throughout the season. They also have Florida Highwaymen and A. E. Backus works on consignment. The museum also has a wonderful gift shop full of Florida gifts, handmade jewelry and A. E. Backus inspired gifts. Make sure to stop in today to enjoy all this local treasure hast to offer.
