Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum Rich in Culture, Information
Have you stopped by the museum to see the historical artifacts and read vital information about Tarpon Springs?
Located on Spring Bayou at 100 Beekman Lane, the Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum is a gem of the city, but some locals don't even know it exists.
With a front-row seat to some of the city's most beloved celebrations, like the Christmas Boat Parade and the Epiphany celebration, the museum conveys vital information on Tarpon Springs and how it came about.
The building that houses the heritage museum used to be a library, but after a serious renovation, the facility has become the picture perfect fit.
Offering two wings, there is little to be left unanswered about Tarpon after a visit:
The History Wing
Find a timeline of the city in this wing that shows you the evolution of the city of Tarpon Springs, from prehistoric settlers to World War II.
The Ecology Wing
In this wing, follow along with the natural discoveries in the area like sponging and marine life.
Old photos showcasing a seemingly ancient Tarpon Springs line the walls while visually stimulating artifacts can be seen in the physical.
Nowadays, the museum hosts charity events, private functions and even concerts. (Stay tuned into Tarpon Springs Patch for upcoming events at the museum.)
According the Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum team, the goal of the facility is to inform visitors, locals and tourists alike, about this diverse community and its culturally rich development.
Visit the Heritage Museum to uncover the historical cornerstones of the city.
