A must see in the area. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The facility and exhibits are artfully maintained, stimulating much conversation and memories among our group. Not a large collection, but significant in understanding the history of the area.
Wonderful place to learn about Bartow history. Very friendly and informative staff.
We always enjoy our visits to this small museum. It may be small, but it has a lot to offer. They host a variety of events throughout the year. Many are great for elementary age. Occasionally they combine their events with the Booth Western Art Museum.
This is a wonderfully curated museum with awesome exhibits about local history. Their lunch and learns and their evening lectures are excellent and the staff is amazing. This is a fantastic place to visit, don’t miss it.
Active Military gets in free but its always good to support your local museum. A lot of beautiful history inside.
