  • This is a good little museum. When you see just how hard it was to settle early Florida and what the early settlers endured you will have a whole new respect for them. Well worth stopping in.  more »

  • Great museum to visit when you're getting to know the area as a visitor or new resident. With staff available to answer your questions and point out points of interest to explore a bit more as you take in the sites of coastal life. Plenty of parking accross the street if you decide to visit nearby shops restaurants. Fun to step into the past, for a quick peek of how time changes life, it can surprise you in ways you might not expect. Have yourself an adventure in time.
  • A friend took me here when visiting their home. Very nice attraction that helps define this excellent community.
