New Exhibit Opens

Renovations on the Anna Maria Island Historical Society Museum have been completed and the new exhibit will open on October 13, 2015.

The new exhibit preserves the character of the original one, but is updated with new information and never before displayed objects. The new exhibit better preserves the objects and enhances accessibility. Visitors will now enter the museum through the front door and exit through the giftshop.

Here are some before-and-after photographs:
