Five months in, our museum is continuing to flourish! The museum is a meeting place for ideas. We never know who will come to visit but it is always a learning experience for both. The museum has also become a good source of income for the association.
We will have special hours during Seminole Days. Don't miss the chance to see it!
"Today my husband and I visited the Seminole Indian Scout Museum. We were very impressed with all the memorabilia that has been collected and the organization of the material. We want to send a special thanks to Windy Goodloe for being our guide through the museum. She was very knowledgeable about all the historical information on display. I highly recommend that everyone visit this museum."
