We toured the museum and really enjoyed learning about Florida and the Constitution Convention that worked to help the area become a United State. Lots of reading and many examples of objects around the area in the 1800’s. Price is $2 per person.

We enjoyed our visit. The volunteer was very knowledgeable of the area history. He took time to answer our questions and he pointed out things we might have missed. All in all it was a very pleasant visit.

Driving along the Forgotten Coast, we saw the State signs for the Florida Constitutional Convention site. An interesting collection of items related to early Florida--and docents eager to tell you all about them. Very friendly!
