Description

This small but informative 25-year old museum, located minutes from I-10 off US 17, celebrates both the history and culture of daily life in the South during the 19th century. At the Museum of Southern History there are artifacts and memorabilia from the Civil War, and from everyday Southern life, politics and fashion. Friendly staff can assist visitors who are interested in tracing the genealogy of Southern families, leading you through the extensive research library that features more than 3,000 volumes. A spectacular assortment of original military items is on sale in the museum's gift shop, called The Florida Depot.
