Jax Best Historical Museum: Mandarin Museum & Historical Society

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A winner for a FOURTH year — the Mandarin Museum and Historical Society has been your pick for Jacksonville’s best history museum.

As written by VisitJax, the museum offers a chance for you to explore the natural beauty of old Florida, capturing a time when citrus growers worked the land and steamboats plied through the waters.

In the museum, learn about a Union steamboat that hit a Confederate mine and sank off Mandarin Point. There’s also a rotating gallery that exhibits modern and past artists that were inspired by the Mandarin community.

Artists recently featured included John Kenning, Gary Garrett, Bruno Alberts, and Mary Atwood.

It’s not just your favorite history museum, but it’s also taken top honors repeatedly as your favorite museum in Jacksonville.
