  • I absolutely loved it. I visit many museums and this is definitely on my top 5. It's fun and interactive, yet very historical. Definite must see if you're visiting Downtown Orlando. At the moment is it is free to hurry! They have a lovely tribute to the 49 pulse. I cried throughout the whole journey. It was amazing and so thoughtfully planned. You felt the raw emotions from every piece.
  • Really enjoyed the visit and all the exhibits. Especially enjoyed the old court room maintained in its original condition. There was so much to learn. We spent 2.5 hrs there and could have spent more time.
  • We loved the history center. It's history on Florida is in great detail. Very family friendly. Not as big as you think like a museum but big enough to spend couple of hours. Also if you bank at Bank of America you get in for free every first weekend of the month.
  • Had a great time learning about all of Florida's history. From the natives to the triple "K". Best 6 for a history lession. Gave a new meaning to the street name and overall appeal of why Orlando and Florida are the way they are. Those damn "Crackers".
  • Well run and interesting place. Also very well used and available for community involvement and groups to use. Third Wednesday of the month the "Orlando remembered" group meets to keep the oral history of Orlando going.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
