The mission of the Dunedin Museum is to enrich community pride by sharing Dunedin's legacy and heritage, to collect and preserve the historical artifacts and documents of Dunedin, and to foster quality intergenerational learning and historical exhibits. The Dunedin Museum maintains its collections and exhibits conforming to the American Alliance of Museum standards.
The 501(c)(3) Dunedin Museum contains approximately 2,000 artifacts, 2,500 photographs, and a library containing 200 volumes of local and Florida history. Included in the collection is an electronic archive of theDunedin Times Newspaper, from 1924 through 1965.
Permanent exhibit segments feature statewide topics such as the railroad and citrus industries. Regional topics include Dunedin's multicultural origins, our pioneering families, Mease Hospital, sports history of Dunedin, industries in Dunedin, development of the alligator tank used by the U.S. Marines during WWII in the Pacific, and natural habitats such as Caladesi and Honeymoon Isle.
The public is welcome to use our research library for research of any kind, but we ask that you make an appointment with our Curator.
