Wonderful History of Fort Lauderdale

My father-in-law, husband, and I enjoyed leaning about the history of Fort Lauderdale on our docent guided tour. Our docent guide Daniel is a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. After a fact-filled video about the history of Fort Lauderdale, Daniel expanded on the information, sharing stories about prominent people in Fort Lauderdale’s past. He toured us through the History Museum, the Pioneer House, and the Schoolhouse Museum, explaining the history of the buildings and the people who used them. Our tour was at 3:00 pm, at the end of the day, and Daniel apologized for being a little rushed since the museum closes at 4:00 pm. He has so much information to share that it does take some time! We could have had a little more time to explore the Pioneer House, but he did allow us to stay late and explore the upstairs exhibits at the History Museum while he and others began cleaning and preparing to lock-up. I would suggest an earlier tour time in case it allows a little more time to learn and explore. That said, it was a wonderful experience that all three of us enjoyed.

The docents know a lot about the history of the area and are really passionate about sharing it. It’s amazing how little was here only 100 years ago.

A little lacking

The museum was quite interesting and we loved the idea of artists sharing the space. We opted for a guided tour and we're a little disappointed. The guide shared a lot of trivia, but I left feeling I still didn't know the "arc" of the history of the place.

I apologize for the tour not meeting your expectations. If you are local to Fort Lauderdale, please email info@flhc.org to schedule a private tour with our executive director.

Wonderful guided tour of 3 small museums finishing up with a self guided portion. We got to speak with one of the artist in residents who guided us thru all the small galleries, we purchased 1 canvas and 2 multi media pieces, this was a great unexpected art of the experience!!!
