About us!
 The museum's permanent exhibits presents the history of the greater Daytona Beach area known as Halifax Country
with artifacts dating from 5,000 B.C.E.
  • The local Native Americans, the Timucuans 
  • The Spanish and British colonial eras
  • Early pioneer families
  • Beach/road  auto racing
  • World War I & II
  • Vintage toys & clothing for children in         Grandma's Attic
  • A  20 minutes movie is shown continuously throughout the day covering 130,000 years of local history!
The Museum offers a research facility with old city directories and documents as well as an extensive photographic and postcard collection.

Housed in the former 1910 Merchants Bank building, the two-story interior walls are graced with hand-painted murals depicting area scenes, and highlighted by Beaux Arts styling of stained glass windows and lighting. The building is a destination in itself. You don't want to miss it.
