Very interesting and very informative. Well laid out. The guys at the front desk were very helpful answering a couple of questions we had after we had been inside. Well worth a visit.

There's a well laid out display providing a history of the area. You don't need to spend too long as the display isn't big.

The Spanish influence can be seen in this building. It is in the main square and exhibits in the museum are not that big but they do explain the history of this the oldest city.

Lots to see and do in the oldest city. Favorite was the Fountain of Youth. Old Town Trolly or Red Train is the way to go. Only one little shower while we were there.

So glad we shopped in this museum. Very informative with many artifacts pre-Columbian, native American, Spanish and English influence. Helps you understand the unique history of this charming small city.

There were some displays but mostly reading descriptions. I think younger children would be bored. Cost was free
