Opened in 1977, the Museum of Florida History collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets evidence of past and present cultures in Florida, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of this heritage. Recently renovated with the first of three phases for the new permanent exhibit, the Museum of Florida History feature events and exhibits relevant to Florida's 500 year anniversary since the landing of Juan Ponce de León in 1513.

As the state history museum, it focuses on artifacts and eras unique to Florida's development and on roles that Floridians have played in national and global events.  Through exhibits, educational programs, research, and collections, the Museum reflects the ways that people have shaped and reacted to their cultural and natural environments.
