Museum Day

Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day is a national celebration of museums. On this day, you can visit Cracker Country and experience a historic rural Florida lifestyle for FREE!

Explore original buildings from Florida’s pioneer past, including the iconic Okahumpka railroad depot, a one-room schoolhouse, a well-stocked mercantile, a post office, the 1885 home of a Florida governor and more. Stroll through four acres shaded by majestic live oak trees and enjoy the museum at your own pace. Along the way, you will meet historical interpreters who are ready to share with you what life might have been like for rural Floridians living at the turn of the 20th century.

Cracker Country’s General Store features nostalgic and reproduction items, historical toys and games, books, candy and many other unique gift items that are great for holiday giving! Proceeds from sales in the General Store help support Cracker Country’s educational programs.
