The museum is still a work in progress. A nice facility with a good depiction of the town and area 's history. Super nice staff. I am confident the museum will only get better as they continue to develop it.

This place is great for children to learn all about trains and the volunteers love to speak to them about it. They are great with kids and keep them entertained. They had a little area upstairs that the kids can play with toy trains themselves. Is you are in the area check it out.

We visited the farmers market on a Saturday morning and then took a stroll. We went to see the fire truck and snap a few picture when I bumped into the museum. It a great spot to learn the history of Central Florida.

We stopped in for about a 1/2 hour. Nice history of Winter Garden. Lady at the desk was very knowledgeable and talkative. Cool caboose out front.

We arrived in Winter garden on the day of their Christmas parade. I was desperately looking for a rest room and went into the museum. it was being used for a function but the delightful lady on the desk welcomed me and had a chat and allowed me to use their excellent facilities.

The bright yellow caboose out front has been getting my attention for years when riding the West Orange Trail through downtown Winter Garden. This time I parked the bike and went inside to see the museum. Admission is free (but donations gladly accepted) and the air conditioning felt great. They have a lot of displays of the local history crammed... More

It is a nice place to visit. It is free and looks very back in the time. Inside the train is very new for me, but it is authentic.

I believe we actually were next door to the Heritage Museum and got information and a tour from Grace,a volunteer, and Mr. Jim, the Director, who were there to open up before the Museum opened at 1pm. We learned lots from Grace who proudly showed us around and pointed out local art and artifacts and was very helpful in sharing... More
