Fort Lauderdale Museums
With The Family

Visit a few Fort Lauderdale museums if you are a
history buff, wondering about science or just
want to see something beautiful.

Step inside one of the Greater Fort Lauderdale museums and learn something new while having fun at the same time.

Imagine being inside a rocket ready to blast into space. Dabble on some watercolor paints and create the next refrigerator masterpiece.

Step back into time and hear stories of pioneer life along the New River. Maybe spent a part of the afternoon contemplating an art print or some sculpture.

Many of the museums in the Fort Lauderdale area are small-ish, giving a taste of life as it once was and the culture of the present day.

There are a few Fort Lauderdale museums that are made just for families and children in mind. But there are other little gems that are certainly worth considering if you’re looking for something to do indoors, and that everyone in the family will come away enriched and inspired.


Speaking of refrigerator art... have a look at Family Fun Cartoons. Jon has dozens of free printable coloring pages that your child can enjoy.
