Museum on the Move

During our temporary closure, the Museum of Florida History will become a Museum on the Move! This multifaceted initiative will allow the public to continue to engage with the Museum and take advantage of its unique learning opportunities, access its vast educational materials, and participate in engaging programs.

The program will offer access to the Museum of Florida History's unique resources and staff expertise through a variety of avenues. Hands-on activities, online resources and programs, lectures, educational outreach, and even exhibits and displays at off-site locations will all be a part of the Museum on the Move program.
