The High Springs Museum is a hidden treasure in the small town of High Springs. Featured through late August is a fabulous exhibit by traveling Smithsonian "Water/Ways". In addition the locals have created an amazing underwater cave that is awesome.
In addition to water and springs, the Museum has a miniature train room that shows what High Springs might have looked like in the early 1900's.
Museum is free and worth the drive.

Step into the history of High Springs as you adventure through its history land marks and to the people who made this wee town beam in its own era to be remembered by. This quaint little place will turn your head when you tour this alive,well noted history lesson. If you like trains this is the place to come and see while visiting High Springs. The museum is surrounded by a town park with lots of places to just sit and f remember the good old days or rehearse this part of the past history of the brain, as you bash in the park"s loveliness.Take a moment out of your time when you visit High Springs and before you choose a number of places to eat, and once again dwell in the making of what High Springs was while you were yet a star blushing somewhere in the skies.

I like learning about the history of High Springs: Our springs and rivers, the history of the past people and what brought different industries to our community!

As technology continues to push the market, it is always difficult to preserve history so its really cool to learn from the train diorama and the artifacts collected. However, it will be more challenging to draw in the customers.

It is a small museum. I hope that there will be opportunities for it to grow.

I really appreciate the volunteers taking time to educate the patrons visiting.
