Learn Seminole History
There is no better place to learn then at a museum! The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum’s goal is to foster an understanding and appreciation of the Seminole Tribe. The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum is home to more than 180,000 unique artifacts, archival items and experiences. Come and learn about the Seminole people and their rich cultural and historical ties to the Southeast United States and Florida. Find out why the Seminoles are the only tribe in America to be unconquered. The Museum features five different exhibit galleries for our visitors to explore. The museum has a full calendar of events throughout the year so there is always something new and exciting going on.
Get Away from it All
