Worth the $2 admission! The person on duty was very helpful and personable. It was interesting to see the history and artifacts. We enjoyed the kayak launch area and used it the next day. Make sure you visit the house and walk the trails.

It's a nice quiet place to stroll around and see the artifacts and learn a little history of Cedar Key. I never knew that Cedar Key played such a big roll in the Civil War.

We were out exploring while staying on Cedar Key and stopped just before closing time to check out the museum. For $2.00, it was worth the stop, especially the old historical Whitman house.
