Launching our Museum Podcast!

We are pleased to announce the launching of our museum podcast. On each episode, Dave Zani, podcast host, welcomes a new guest to share their stories, history and memories of Lake County, Florida.

In our first episode John Jackson, retired Lake County Agriculture Extension Agent, discusses his extensive history within the citrus industry and brings us back to a time when citrus reigned king in Lake County!


Welcome back history fans! We are pleased to announce the museum is open for visitors!

Our normal operating hours are Tuesday – Friday, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

We invite you to come visit us this summer. Also, find us on Facebook by searching Lake County Historical Museum!

Summer is here

It’s June and in Florida, that means it’s hot! Although there is a lot to do in the outdoors in Florida, sometimes you just need to cool off. Your Lake County Historical Museum is just the place! Our air-conditioned location in the Historic Courthouse is filled with lots of cool things. Come see the new art exhibition in the Military Gallery, the new additions to our mural of famous Lake County Veterans and watch as we build our newest exhibit on the early Spanish explorers and settlers in Gallery 4. There are games and prizes for kids and adults as well, so it’s the perfect spot to come in and cool off for a while!

The museum is open 10-3 Wednesday, Thursday & Friday and 10-2 Tuesday and Saturday.
