Take Home a Piece of Our Past!

As we get ready for our big upcoming renovations, we’ve found a stash of treasures in the museum’s hidden corners. From gargantuan gators to magical mermaids, we got just the right amazing object to bring a true touch of Florida and fabulous fun to your home or office!

We’re talking about everything from massive manatees to a compact King Kong—even the pretend claw of a giant sloth, and it’s pretty scary. In short, a plethora of one-of-a-kind treasures, ranging in size from 6 inches to more than 6 feet, that spell out the wild, wacky, and wonderful state we’re in.

On August 10, from noon to 2 p.m., we’ll part with our Fabulous Floridiana during an exciting live auction, led by a professional auctioneer. Proceeds benefit History Center programs. The museum will offer free admission, and you can examine our treasures starting at 10 a.m.

Please note that most of these props or models go back to the museum’s opening almost 20 years ago; they must be sold “as is,” so you’ll want to check them out before bidding.
