Friends of the Museum























The Lake Mary Historical Museum is owned by the City of Lake Mary and is partially funded (utilities and general maintenance) by the municipality.

The museum itself is operated by the non-profit Lake Mary Historical Society, whose volunteer members staff the museum and coordinate events and exhibits. The cost of the exhibits and events offered  is borne by the Historical Society which is dependent on donations and small fees charged for special events such as the annual Ghost Walk.

The society also coordinates a program which permits students (high school or higher) to volunteer at the museum and earn credits toward their academically required community service. 

Admission to the museum is free, as are the exhibits offered throughout the year.

The museum is open Thursdays from 6PM to 8PM and Saturdays from 10AM to 2PM. Other times are available by appointment.




You can become a Friend of the Museum in several ways:



Donations in any amount are gratefully accepted by the society. You can drop your donation (cash or check) off when you visit the museum (a great way to learn about the history of Lake Mary) or you can mail to the society. We are not able to accept mail at the physical address of the museum (158 N. Country Club Road) so please make sure you use the drop box address below.

Please make checks out to the Lake Mary Historical Society and indicate that it is a donation in the memo field.

As a volunteer group, the Historical Society is always looking for adults interested in history who would like be trained as docents to assist visitors during the hours the museum is open.  If you would like to volunteer or learn more about what would be involved, please e-mail us at info@lakemaryhistory.org or call 407- 585-1481 and leave a message.


Join our E-Mail Family and help spread the word:

Add your name to our e-mail list and get advance notice of upcoming exhibits and events at the museum. We do not sell the mailing list or use it for any other purpose but to let you know what's coming. Once you have visited the museum (which we hope will be soon) spread the word to your friends and neighbors about what a unique and interesting place it is.

To sign up to receive e-announcements about exhibits and events, all you have to do is send your name and address to us at: info@lakemaryhistory.org.


Thanks for considering becoming a Friend of the Museum. We hope you'll stop by for a visit in the near future!
