The Orange County Regional History Center

History museum in Downtown Orlando

Visit the Orange County Regional History Center for an insight into Florida's rich heritage with a range of exhibits and exhibitions over four floors. Located in the city's old courthouse, the non-for-profit museum was established in 1942 and specializes in bringing 12,000 years of Florida's history to visitors. The Orange Country Regional History Center is affiliated the Smithsonian Institution, which means there are a number of unique exhibitions and events that also take place throughout the year at the museum. The permanent exhibits range from the history of the first people in the region to over 100 years of tourism in Florida, as well as the most modern theme park era. The museum also features some great interactive displays about Walt Disney, as well as a large collection of over 17,000 photographs of the county.

Parking is available in the garage across from the public library, in the heart of downtown Orlando. You can also access the museum using the Lymmo bus, a free bus service that operates from a number of spots in the downtown area.
