This is a nice little museum/historical area in the Jacksonville Landing. Take some time to stoll around, you will learn something, and the ship models are amazing.

The Jacksonville Historical Center is a true diamond in the rough. It's filled with all kinds of historical artifacts, pictures and information. The gentleman working at the Center was a wealth of information and very pleasant. A great place to learn about your city!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy history and the freedoms I experience because of the Navy, but I think the museum would do better if they focused on pre-WWI Maritime history.

Was in town with the family during the recent holidays and stopped in at the Landing. The Jacksonville Maritime Heritage Center was quite a treat! Something for everybody of all ages even if you aren't a sailor or history buff. Very pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable staff. Will come back!

It's a mini museum of Jacksonville's history. Good if you like history.

Thank Jeania A
