This is a must see for visitors and locals alike. So much of Jacksonville is missed by not checking out the smaller historic places. They have really done a wonderful job restoring this theatre to be both a performance venue and museum. Highly recommend!

We stopped by as an excursion from the conference. We had a private tour that was awesome. I would recommend stopping by.
