The museum had a lot of beautifully preserved artifacts. Talks a lot about the local history. There is a very small donation that is required to enter but it’s a must-see.

We visited my wife’s ancestral home and learned so much. We will be back again and again. The museum has done a lot to preserve the information with care. It is like going back in time. Very educational for the children.

It was very interesting to walk around and learn about the local history. The place was small enough that you could see everything in an hour or so but still very informative.

We love this museum and learning about the history of Cedar Key. Love when Dr. Andrews is the tour guide for his home and whisk broom factory.

Visited yesterday, it was my third visit, each several years apart. The Museum has a lot to offer for a small Museum. The $2.00 admission is very minimal.

The end of the train line. The hurricane took it out a long time ago. Like going back into early Florida's history. Lot of elderly people were in the building. The pictures and talk were nice.
