We enjoyed our visit. The volunteer was very knowledgeable of the area history. He took time to answer our questions and he pointed out things we might have missed. All in all it was a very pleasant visit.

Driving along the Forgotten Coast, we saw the State signs for the Florida Constitutional Convention site. An interesting collection of items related to early Florida--and docents eager to tell you all about them. Very friendly!

I visited here with my 4 kids. The ranger absolutely made this visit for us. She really took the time to engage with the kids and verbally explained some of the history of the area. Very educational. I'd recommend about 30-45 minutes for a visit.

You can learn a lot about FL by going through this museum. It's small so it doesn't take a lot of time to get through it.
