The Halifax Historical Society was founded in 1949. The mission of the Society is to gather and preserve the history of the Halifax River area and present it to the public in an interesting and educational manner.
Visitors often comment that this museum and it's impressive collections are one of the best kept "secrets" in the North Central Florida area. One of our primary objectives is to get word of our Museum and services to visitors and residents alike.
The history of the Daytona Beach and the Halifax River area are showcased through impressive collections and exhibits at this museum.The focus of the museum is to present the history of the greater Daytona Beach area with artifacts dating from 5,000 B.C. including the local Native Americans, the Spanish and British colonial eras, early pioneer families, beach auto racing, World War II and vintage toys. Housed in the former 1910 Merchants Bank building, the two-story interior walls are graced with hand-painted murals depicting area scenes, and highlighted by Beaux Arts styling of stained glass windows and lighting.
A theater with seating for 50 features a high definition television and videos on the history of the area. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Adult admission is $4.00 and $1 for children younger than 12. Admission is free on Thursdays. Children are free on Saturday.
