The Lake County Historical Museum will be joining the Smithsonian Institute and museums across the country in celebrating National Museum Day on September 22! Museums will be offering free admission and special events to mark the occasion. The Lake County Historical Museum is always free and we will have fun activities for all ages from 10am – 2pm.
Museums exist to house the stories of people. They are dedicated to the lives, histories and passions of the human experience. For just about anything you can imagine, a museum exists to tell the story. Museums in Central Florida include specialties like Pioneer Living, Modern Art, Tiffany Glass and African-American History. Visiting these museums allows you to find the stories that interest you and encourage you to dive deeper through research in archives, libraries and other specialty museums. No single museum can tell every story and we think you should make visiting museums a regular habit!
The Lake County Historical Museum is dedicated to telling the story of Lake County, Florida. From prehistoric times, to the development of it’s political and economic structures, the trials and triumphs of it’s citizens and it’s ongoing growth and development, we fit a whole lot into our four galleries.
Come see us this National Museum Day, or any day, to learn the stories of Lake County!
