“Best $2 I spent”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Tiny museum, stuffed full of fascinating pictures and artefacts from school desks to orange squeezers, railroad timetables to fire hoses, jail house art to bibles. Personalised guided tour, where else would you get that?

“Mount Dora Historical Society Museum”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

The Mount Dora Historical Society Museum is a must see when you visit Mount Dora, a quaint little city 40 miles north of Orlando. It can be found at 450 Royellou Lane; Mount Dora, FL 32757 [Between 5th and 4th Avenue] Conveniently located in Downtown Mount Dora. You would be surprised at the history this little city has. There was a movie filmed there back in the 70's wherein they painted the town pink.

“Historical Society Museum”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Although the Historical Museum was small and hard to find it was worth the stop. It was interesting to see how small at one time fire trucks were and how the town was formed and got its name.

Reviewed 9 June 2013

If this is the Mt. Dora / Jail / Museum then I want to tell you it was very interesting. Susan (guide) was very informative and interesting to talk with. Shared a lot of great Mt. Dora History stories.

“A fascinating hour or two”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

A lovely little snapshot of life in the town as it was in the last 150 years. It is good to see the historical artefacts being preserved. And we enjoyed talking to the curator who was most informative.
