Members Reception Thank you to our members! This past year, Museum Members helped accomplish the following:

  • Over 73,000 visitors from 71 different countries and ALL 50 states learned about Florida's political history.
  • Over 600 educational programs were offered.
  • Navigating New Worlds: Identity, Perception, and Politics in Florida, our highly successful Viva Florida 500 exhibition of historic maps and prints attracted visitors statewide and received national publicity.
  • We also offered unique programming in conjunction with special exhibits: Anne Mergen: Florida Cartoons and Choosing to Participate: The Power of Civic Engagement.

The Florida Historic Capitol Museum celebrates its members and past year's accomplishments at its Annual Members Reception featuring delicious hors d'oeuvres, live music by the Zach Bartholomew Trio, door prizes, and a grand prize drawing of a Destin getaway in a luxurious beach house that sleeps 12.

It is not too late to become a member! Join now and attend this fun-filled evening and be entered into our drawings!

This home is a luxurious two story cottage with three bedrooms, four baths and sleeps 12.

In addition to celebrating with all of our Museum Members, we will be recognizing a special group of Founding Members who have pledged to support the Museum with gifts of $5,000 and $10,000 payable over five years. These Founding Members will attend a seated dinner in the Senate Chamber beginning at 7:00 p.m. There is still time to make a Founding Member pledge and join us for this seated dinner. If you are interested in becoming a Founding Member or have additional questions, please contact our Director of External Relations at (850) 717-0283.

Museum Members at every level of giving are integral to the success of the Florida Historic Capitol Museum. We thank you for your support and look forward to honoring you for your commitment to the Museum at this Members-only reception and Founding Member Dinner.
