From ancient cultures to Civil Rights, and theme parks to exciting events happening each and every day, Central Florida is at your fingertips.
Our permanent exhibits tell the fascinating stories of the diverse peoples who have called Central Florida home – from early indigenous Americans, Seminoles, and Spanish cattle ranchers to citrus growers, soldiers, astronauts, visionaries, entertainers including Walt Disney, and more.
