I have been visiting Ponte Vedra/Jax beach for many decades but had never stopped in the museum until this trip. The history of the Jacksonville beaches area is fascinating.

The museum is free, and a worthy stop for learning about local history and local artists. They rotate shows, lately of the different beach towns, and their current artists are the three best artists at the Beach, Gary Mack, Linda Olsen, and William Meyer.
