Nestled in the heart of a modern downtown, History Fort Lauderdale's campus...
Nestled in the heart of a modern downtown, History Fort Lauderdale's campus includes 3 museums that tell the story of how a wartime fort became a modern city. The campus is the largest collection of historic buildings remaining in Broward County.
The History Museum, housed in the 1905 New River Inn, contains exhibits from prehistoric through present day. The King Cromartie House Museum (1907) is set as if the family will return at any moment for Sunday supper. Upstairs tour Louise King's sewing room, family bedrooms with period sleepwear, children's room with period dollhouse and antique dolls. The 1899 Schoolhouse Museum is complete with period wooden desks and textbooks.
Docent-led tours of all 3 museums begin every day at 1 PM, 2 PM and 3PM. Walking & Boat Tours, which include admission to all 3 museums, are also available with reservations.
