Old Florida Museum (OFM) is now located at the Florida Agricultural and Rural Museum and open for business. Old Florida Museum offers six unique "HANDS-ON" programs designed to be entertaining as well as educational. Students experience life through the struggles and successes of its people during distinct time periods of Florida’s history.  All programs follow the Sunshine State Standards.  

Each program runs for 40 to 55 minutes. Groups may choose to do 1, 2 or all 6 programs. The program areas fit up to 30 participants comfortably. Multiple classes can be accommodated in the facility at one time with split groups.

OUTLINE OF THE PROGRAMS

A museum representative greets the group upon arrival and gives an orientation prior to entering.  A costumed guide shares an interactive history of the time period. Students may make a project that they will take home.  Students then have free time to participate in a variety of activity stations.
