This is a small museum in the Chamber of Commerce building. It features an array of wildlife common to the everglades and local area. Also has some interesting relics from the WW II era when British fliers were training there.

This history museum was very informative about the city. It helps kids and adults understand why this town was created. Located in the heart of the city. Nice, clean, friendly people working at this museum. Opened on weekdays only.
