Halifax Historical Museum is another very special place to visit located on Beach Street. The staff is welcoming and helpful and the items are interesting. Located in what had been a bank, it provides a unique experience for those visiting the area.

We were looking to learn a little about Florida history and something about the Daytona area as well. The Halifax Museum met and exceeded our expectations!! From the warm welcome to the knowledgeable docent, Kathy, to our time there, it was a great experience. The exhibits are very well done and cover a broad spectrum of Florida and Daytona history....

Give yourself about 90 minutes to tour the museum; 2 floors of exhibits and a 20 minutes movie. The history of Daytona Beach.

Lots of information on the founding of Daytona beach and the areas nearby. Kids will be bored silly but adult history buffs will find this a charming bit of southern americana. Great for a rainey day. Hours change so call ahead.

A great place to learn a little more about Daytona and how it came to be. There is more to Daytona than bike week and the racetrack. It has a rich history and offers so much to the visiting public along with a beautiful beach that doesn't seem to end. The staff and volunteers of the museum are friendly and... More
