“historical”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Micanopy is a small town with a lot of history. The buldings are really neat to see as there is the jail, an old garage all of which hold antique stores. Its a laid back place with a few places to eat that are good as well. People are friendly too. Its a relaxing way to spend time.

“Educational and Nostalgic”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

Very interesting inside and out. Very nice volunteer staff. Neat stuff! I especially like the general store section and items that were traded/sold at this location.

“Well worth the five minute walk from downtown”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I'd been in Micanopy twice but never took the extra steps to the Historical Society Museum. Yesterday, I was sent there as part of a scavenger hunt. And I found a gem! So much information and HISTORY packed into this small building. When we walked in, the president of the Historical Society was reading from an actual newspaper from the 1800s. Not a reprint, just to give other visitors to the museum a glimpse into the Seminole Wars. I was more interested in the Civil War exhibit. But what most delighted me was a Brownie (Girl Scout) uniform from the 60s. Looked just like the uniform I wore as a girl.

“Nice picture of Micanopy history”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

I was not expecting much, since this is an extremely small town filled mainly with shops of antiques, a few restaurants and a great used book store (my fave in FL). We really enjoyed our informative visit and highly recommend this as a stop on your first visit to Micanopy, the location for the Michael J Fox gem, "Doc Hollywood".
