The University of Central Florida has leased the student museum in Sanford from Seminole County Public Schools for two years. The UCF history department will continue to provide programs for 4th grade students in the public schools but will also offer college courses and promote graduate study and research at the museum. The center offers a large collection of items and artifacts from early Florida history, especially Seminole County. It encourages families and children to drop in and explore.
The Public History Center is located at 301 W. 7th Street in Sanford, FL. It is open to the public Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm. Guided and self-guided tours are available and while admission is free, donations are accepted. Call 407-936-1679 for more information.
