Temporary Exhibits

All temporary exhibits are included with general museum admission.  

May 11 – December 29th - The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse

Celebrate 150 years of Cape Canaveral Lighthouse History with this special exhibit from the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation.

September 15th - December 15th - Beaches, Creatures, and Cowboys: Florida Movie Posters

This exhibit, from the Museum of Florida History, depicts some of Florida's most famous films from the early 1920s to the present. Producers have been making films in Florida since the dawn  of the film industry. For a short time in the early twentieth century, Florida even rivaled California as th place for movie making. However, a lack of government support, money, and studio facilities hurt the industry in Florida, and while many films still shot scenes in Florida, it wasn't until studios like Universal and Disney began moving in that the Florida film industry began to rise once again.

Colorful, eye-catching posters advertised films and drew people to the movies. Often, several different posters promoted one film, with each image designed to appeal to a specific audience. The posters on display depict some of Florida's most famous films from the early 1920s to the present. They are a part of the Museum of Florida History's permanent collection of Florida movie memorabilia.
