This small museum is next to the old jail and "Gator Bob's." It is worth a stop and doesn't take long to go through it. My family and I enjoyed seeing it and checking out the history just like we enjoyed lots of other family...More

This was part of our hop-on/hop-off trolley tour, so thought we might as well. There were some interesting artifacts and history; however, I don't know it was anything I'd have felt I'd missed out on if we had chosen to do something else.
