This little museum was certainly worth the time to visit. There is an entry fee which is pretty stiff given how small the place is but if you live here you owe it to yourself to vist and pay up.

You can easily walk or bike here from Main Street. It was a quick history lesson about artsy Safety Harbor. Very limited parking. Sits on a beautiful lot overlooking Tampa Bay.

Small museum, but has some interesting things to know about the area from past years. Donation required, but worthy investment.

First off, the photo pictured is old. This whole building has been renovated. With wrap around porches, re-furbished garden area, in general lots of curb appeal. This museum always contains the history of Safety Harbor, Toccabaga Indians, and Odet Philippe, it's all very interesting, along with rotating displays in the other half. There's an indian burial mound located on the... More

Not worth going out of the way for, unless you love antiques or archaeology. My husband quickly lost interest and waited for me outside. Small museum; can be seen in 1/2 hour. My favorite exhibit is temporary--"Rocket Man" sculpture out on the front lawn.

The tour that Scott gave us was full of information I never knew about. I learned so much and loved the old tools that he explained. Well worth the very small fee.
