Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum was very enlightening! My friend and I learned so much about Florida and Kissimmee. The Tin Can Tourism Exhibit and the Scavenger Hunt were my favorite parts of the Museum. Our guide was very nice and accommodating !...More

This is a little history and a wonderful trail right by it. You will read about the town, you will not be charged for this visit, it is strictly by donations, I suggest you stop in with the family and give it a visit.

Looking for a rainy day place to visit and came upon the Welcome Center. A lot of historic and interactive exhibits. Don't miss the sweat tea at the door!

Just enough information to keep things interesting. Small and done in an hour or 2. Josh, the curator, offered a ton of information. Great visit.
