Tuck away in back of the Plantation Library, most people don't even know this little museum exists. Which is a pity because it is great. Tiny but with ever changing exhibits that are tied to the city in some fashion. Xmas tree displays, historical city pics and equipment; wwII from eyes of local vets. Always interesting and FREE.

We discovered this museum after having living and working in Plantation for years once we visited the adjacent private Helen B. Hoffman Library. We always enjoy the extensive and impressive Christmas displays each Holiday Season. We also attended the fun new exhibit: "The Pirates: Treasure, Terror & Tall Tales" which had it's official opening this past Saturday, June 4, 2016... More

We were only able to get 15 minutes of this place, but wish we had an hour. There were war pieces, a mounted dinosaur skeleton, a saber tooth cat skeleton and lots more. The best part about this place though was the friendliness of the persons who guide you through it. They are very welcoming and kind. Everyone near plantation... More

You must visit the Plantation Historical Museum. From Dinosaurs to modern day there is something of interest for the whole family. The staff is very gracious and knowledgeable, and ready to give you a tour or answer questions. We were there during a dinosaur exhibition and it was very informative. The Museum is not just Plantation history, but a compendium... More
