From a 1930s painting of St. Augustine’s fort Castillo de San Marcos, to quilts and cigar box labels, The Museum of Florida History in Tallahassee has something for everyone.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary with a spectacular twentieth-century exhibit detailing Florida’s modern history, the display features hundreds of artifacts, films, music and immersive experiences. Don’t wait too long though, as it closes July 29.
Permanent displays include: “Florida Remembers World War II,” “Naval Ships Named Florida,” and “Forever Changed: La Florida, 1513–1821,” which is a part of the museum’s statewide effort to highlight 500 years of Florida history.
