Beaches Museum & History Park

381 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville Beach, FL

This museum is just the right size for short attention spans. Kids will like the railroad-oriented exhibits and vintage steam train car. The park also holds a train depot, chapel, and two-story house. Recently, an old Florida-style “cracker house” moved onto the property and awaits renovation. The main exhibit building contains a wealth of historic photographs from all the local beach communities. Traveling exhibits also visit.

Admission is free and guided tours are on the hour.

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday
