  • Really well organized museum, you can walk the whole thing in about 1.5-2hrs. It has some interactive exhibits, which makes it interesting for kids, and the staff are more than happy to guide you around. It runs on donations, so please consider donating when you visit - how many museums are absolutely free *and* provide parking validation? At least a couple bucks per person.
  • Florida history in 4 hours give or take. This is a very comprehensive exhibit of the state's early to current history. This museum will take some time if you do it thoroughly. The problem is you get a little brain dead after about two to three hours! Nice that it's free. Great to do it over two days or more.
  • Great place to learn about Florida. Everything from Ponce De Leone to how Florida played a role in WWII and how the Daytona 500 was born. And it's free too but I highly suggest a donation as some so called museums don't have have as much too see. It's very kid friendly too.
  • The museum has good exhibits showing the history of Florida... And moreover, it's free!!
  • Tons of history under one roof... super clean. Fun for the family, free!!!
