Come aboard as we undertake a voyage in time and tradition. Our port of call is somewhere in the past, but the harbor is a modern museum facility housed in a historic 1912 Schoolhouse, located on the grounds of the Cortez Nature Preserve. Here you will find, displayed for your delight, pieces of the almost forgotten past. At the Florida Maritime Museum you will find the Banks Shell collection, ship models, historic boats, a surprise butterfly garden, and more!. Families and community members will also have the opportunity to build boats and learn boat related skills as part of weekend workshops and ongoing programs
