This museum is definitely breathtaking! Our family visited this center as a part of our family vacation, education for our teens and also for one of our teens to do a school project/essay. Our tour guide (Cyria), was so very kind and knowledgeable. We learned so very much about the history of the town and African Americans. We walked away... More

The museum contains a time line of the history of the Hannibal Square area from post-Reconstruction era through the present day. The timeline makes no attempt to conceal some of the uncomfortable facts about... More

This was suggested by my cousin who lives in Florida and is not normally frequented by tourists. I found the photos of the inhabitants of the area very interesting.

The museum showcases the significant history of the local African-American population and provides a good context for how Winter Park became what it is today.

They have several nice exhibits about the local community and its history. The time line gives a great overview of the history of Hannibal Square, one of the first communities where African Americans could buy and own property. Currently they have a large photo exhibit featuring old photographs from local families and the stories behind the photos. There is a... More

Interesting display depicting stories from the lives of local African-American identities from 1880s through to present. Very welcoming and informative curator/manager Syria. Nearby Shady Park great for a picnic, or check out one of several upmarket eateries on New England Avenue.

For a person of African descent this was like that beauty of that explorer finding that first lost ruin in plan sight. The only unpleasant part was the march... More

I Loved this quaint little Museum and recommend you stop by when in the Winter Park area if you are interested in the subject matter. The volunteers are amazingly friendly and acomodating too. Make sure to walk around the cute little streets of Hannibal Square while there.
