This place is great! It is a walkthrough from 14,000 bc to present. It has a short film introduction and then uses artifacts, dioramas, photos, etc. for each era. A group of mid-high school kids came through while we were there and they were loving...More

Excellent museum to showcase Florida's history and settlements, culture and people over thousands of years. Very well displayed and visually appealing. Every Floridian could learn a lot from this museum. We did. Good use of our taxes dollars; free admission.

Make sure you read to see when they'll have special exhibits before you go. Otherwise, it's just about Florida history. It's rather small as museums go, but if you're a native Floridian, you'll really enjoy it.

Great museum to spend a few hours. Really more geared to school age kids and adults. We were able to wander through and see it all in about 2 hours. Great displays of Florida history and lots of interactive terminals that my 7 yo enjoyed....More

What a great way to learn the history of our great state of FL. And there is also traveling exhibits that change out. Nice gallery that includes the artwork of the Highway Men!

it all depends on your level of interest in the various exhibits, as others have aptly described. 3-4 hours would be completely adequate, I'd think. that would include time-outs for a snack and some sit down time to relax... More
