Museum of Florida History's 40th Anniversary

Join the Museum of Florida History in celebrating its 40th Anniversary. In 1977, we opened our doors and you came to share, learn, and experience Florida's extraordinary past.

Over the years we enjoyed many significant moments as the Museum grew and evolved. Special exhibitions and events such as the opening for the M*A*S*H exhibit; An Evening with Florida's First Ladies; the exhibits Henrietta Marie: A Slave Ship Speaks; and Napoleon: An Intimate Portrait; Florida Cattle Ranching; and Civil Rights in the Sunshine State are some that we can never forget. In the 1990s, the Museum promoted Florida history by producing the Florida Folk Festival.

Spectacular exhibits and cultural events are only a portion of what makes the Museum successful. The people of Florida, the visitors to our great state, and the school children that bound through our doors inspire us to greatness.
