The Museum is housed in Broward County’s oldest hotel – the 1905 New River Inn. Exhibits include Archaeology, Seminole Culture, Fashion & Military history.
The permanent exhibits trace the history and development of the greater Fort Lauderdale area from pre-historic First Nation People to the first contact by Europeans through the present day. These exhibits are laid out in four galleries on the second floor of the New River Inn. Visitors will experience life-like displays, hear the voices of Fort Lauderdale pioneers, and step back in time with the help of numerous artifacts and images from the museums’ collections.
