Located in the former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Depot, this museum has been consistently named "Best Historical Museum in the Tampa Bay Area" by Tampa Bay Magazine. The building itself - built in 1924 - has been transformed into a charming repository of regional history with interactive and special traveling exhibits which draw people of all ages. The history of the town's Scottish heritage, along with the account of its pioneers, citrus industry and railroads are proudly on display in some 2,000 artifacts and 2,500 photos. Also featured is the background on Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands. Railroad memorabilia traces the evolution of early railroad companies in Florida and a permanent exhibit outlines Dunedin's pioneering families and its multicultural origins.
