This is a tough one to review because those who love Burt Reynolds will find it a 5-star. those who don't will be wasting their time. It's basically a collection of Reynold's stuff from when he lived in the area pre-Lonnie divorce. The surroundings are nice - on a small protuberance into the intracoastal Waterway.

This museum has been demolished and replaced with a shopping center. It was to be replaced, but never happened. Burt Reynolds sold most his stuff in 2014 with no hopes of replacing the museum.

Memorabilia from Burt's Life displayed along with photos and
remembrance's of his costars . Very Kitch but if you like Burt you would have loved this place. It is no longer around and they had promised it would be relocated, but it was more a work of love than a profitable endeavor so its unlikely to find a new home. Unless it joined onto another attraction. Still it was a great visit.
Date of my visit was in late 2012 or early 2013 . The Harbourside shopping and restaurant center is on that location now. Tiger will be opening his flagship restaurant there. Perhaps a marriage of the 2 big names could revive the venue. All golfers know Tiger but all adults over 35 know Burt Reynolds ( Smokey and the Bandit still plays on cable today )

Used to love to take visitors there. Each and every time we would visit, we would see something new. It's such a shame they tore it down, to build the monstrosity that is now known as Harborside. A little bit of Jupiter history was lost. Sad to see it gone.

It was a great exhibit of Burt's film memorabilia, and the stage presented some great shows. Unfortunately, the location has been torn down to accommodate a hotel for Jupiter Riverwalk, and some of the assets have been moved up to Stuart. Hopefully, they'll be able to find a venue back in Jupiter to celebrate our local star!

It's a small museum with a lot of memorabalia packed in from Burt Reynolds. He also holds acting classes there. If you love Burt, then you'll love his museum.

Because of construction along US 1 and the Intracoastal Waterway the building that housed the museum was torn down. No information as to where the museum will be located or if it will reopen. Website indicates that it is temporarily closed.

I stopped by the museum one day about 4:30 it closed at 5 and the lady told me about the donation but informed me it would take more than a half hour to c the place, I told my friend let's stay and look fast. Statred the tour and went down a little hallway to look at some photo's and there was a door to the outside at the end of the hallway all of a sudden the dooe opened and who do u think walks in Burt himself he was very nice to us let us stay a little longer and gave us autographes and pictures. Made myself and my friends trip to Florida something to remember. Burt is a gentle man with a good grip am now a bigger fan.

The museum was fine - nothing special. I think the admission price was $2. They demolished the museum for a development of some sort. Not sure if and when and where the new museum may be located.

Burt lives on in the hearts of his fans! The musuem was a bit self indulgent..lots of photos, but not a lot of narrative. Would have enjoyed a little bit more info.
