This museum does an excellent job of representing the Seminole Tribe,and for anyone truly interested in their history and culture then it's somewhat isolated location should not be a deterrent to visiting! This latest visit was my second and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The starting point is a short film explaining the Seminole's past,present and future then there are the exhibits which I would encourage visitors to take the time to read the write ups on each and everyone. These people's history is fascinating more so when one realizes the trials and tribulations they've had to endure to survive!
They are a proud people who cherish their culture, and steadfastly hold dear their traditions to pass them on to future generations. An interesting fact which is a source of pride for the Seminoles is the fact that they along with their close relatives the Miccosuki are the only Native American tribe to never have signed a peace treaty with the Federal Government so technically they're still in a state of war with the Federal government.
The museum also has a wonderful boardwalk with explanations on local flora and fauna and how these relate to the Seminoles.
One recommendation- I would definitely suggest visiting this area during Florida's cooler months because I'm sure that any visit during the summer would be uncomfortable at best with the heat,humidity and mosquitoes making for unbearable conditions!
