Palm Beach County History Museum

Palm Beach County History Museum

Located in the 1916 Old Courthouse, the Museum interprets southeastern Florida history in its two wings, the first addressing distinguished personalities in Palm Beach history such as the pioneers who first settled the area, and the second featuring an interactive computer that deals with the growth of the Palm Beach region since the arrival of the first settlers. A courtroom restored to its 1916 condition includes exhibits about government in the area. The Museum is in Boca Raton, to the north of Fort Lauderdale.
