    Great little museum. It chronologically organizes the history of New Smyrna Beach. We learned a lot about New Smyrna Beach and Volusia County. The docents are very knowledgeable and helpful.  more »

    We enjoyed the museum. The volunteers were very helpful. It was a fun side trip on our mini vacation. Donation based and run so be sure to buy or donate. Well organized and insightful.  more »

    Lived here 20 years and finally went to this museum. I am so glad that I did. Full of artifacts and run by some very experienced and friendly people. If you like history, this museum is great.

    The museum is well laid out. I wish I'd had more time. I will come back the next time I'm in the area.

    Great local history, friendly volunteers. No set admission charge, instead leave a donation. Lots of local history programs throughout the year.

    Well worth the visit. Great staff, nice museum, interesting. Nice, quiet break from beach activities. Good for families as well as adults.
