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!

Trips with kids in tow get expensive fast, so I love that this museum is free! The museum is comprehensive, well laid out, and usually pretty empty (a plus in my book). Kids 5 and under will enjoy grandma's attic, the mammoth, and the steamboat,...More

It is a great museum. It may look small from the outside but it has a lot to offer. The best part is that is is free. After visiting the museum, you can walk across the street and visit the capitol.

Interesting way to spend an hour if you are a Florida history buff. I’m not sure how much kids would enjoy it.

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
