Needing a break from theme parks, we sought out a museum and found this one. We were delighted. The exhibits were informative, inviting, and even showed a sense of humor as we learned all kinds of new things about the history and environment of Central Florida.
The staff was well-informed and eager to be of help. We were impressed with the quality of the museum and the efforts of the County Historical Society. There is no charge to visit, and if you want to visit the Pioneer Village you can buy tickets here at a discount. Both locations are family friendly.
The temporary exhibit on the Tin Can Tourists was so good that I regret we live thousands of miles away and won't be able to return for the next exhibit on patent medicines.
We went across the street to the Casablanca Moroccan Restaurant and had another great cultural experience. The Lamb Barkouk was a tender, richly flavorful dish sweetened with prunes and almonds...best lamb dish I've ever eaten (including lamb in Turkey and Greece). The Lemon Chicken was also delicious. A couple of friendly, young Moroccan families own the restaurant and also bake their own very tasty desserts.
