Won tickets on Florida vacation auction, this place was excellent. If you are in the area stop and visit, you will not be disappointed. The grounds are beautiful, movie was educational and museum was a showplace. Seminoles are awesome.

Very nice little museum. Senior discount. Video to start explains somewhat. Really life-like mannequins telling the story of the tribe. Great Boardwalk with indigenous people doing crafts, also explaining about animal skin trading etc with real examples - good for kids to understand.
