Why do I say that it is a must see for every visitor and even Florida Crackers? The Crackers need to know their history, and the visitors will be thoroughly entertained and well-educated by the experience... and it is free!

Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum was very enlightening! My friend and I learned so much about Florida and Kissimmee. The Tin Can Tourism Exhibit and the Scavenger Hunt were my favorite parts of the Museum. Our guide was very nice and accommodating !...More

This is a little history and a wonderful trail right by it. You will read about the town, you will not be charged for this visit, it is strictly by donations, I suggest you stop in with the family and give it a visit.
