This was a surprisingly good museum of the history of Florida, and the evolution of the region as it developed from the dinosaur era. It had a lot of preserved items of the culture of people, and how the state grew. There is a large collection of coins and artifacts found in the area related to the Spaniards and French. They also have old vehicles, and steam boat replica to walk around, and more.
It is open Mon-Friday 9-4:30, SAturday 10-4:30 and Sunday 1-4:30PM. I nice restaurant to a sandwich is in the basement with the museum.

Address: 500 Bronough St
Directions: At the west end of the Government buildings and next to the parking
