Forest Capital Museum State Park
Welcome to Forest Capital Museum State Park
The importance of forestry in Florida dates back to the early 1800s. The museum celebrates that heritage.
The heart of the museum is dedicated to longleaf pines and the 5,000 products manufactured from them. The 50-plus-year-old longleaf pines growing on the museum grounds provide a majestic canopy and create an enjoyable walking trail for visitors.
Upon exiting the museum, visitors take a step back in time to explore an authentic 19th-century cracker homestead, much like those scattered throughout Florida at the turn of the century.
Rangers lead interpretive tours during special events and upon request.
Three covered pavilions seating up to 60 people each are available for rent.
