  • An interesting museum with a very informative member of staff. The history of the hotels and tourism was good long with he time line of the town. Could do with being bigger.  more »
  • This was my first visit. I have a glimpse of it in a video on my youtube channel (link in profile, look for Winter Park Museum Day). Very small with different exhibits. In the heart of Winter Park.  more »

  • Loved this place!! Rode the Sunrail from Longwood to Winter Park with my children and it was within walking distance of the station. It is packed with tons of historical items and information!! Had an amazing time and the woman running it was absolutely wonderful!!! A must see for anyone who enjoys local history!!
  • Nice displays of hotels of the past in Winter Park with the history on plaques telling of the pre-Disney lifestyle in Winter Park, which was popular for celebrities, singers, and other wealthy snowbirds.
