Central FL History 101: Tourist Destination, International Community, and Big City Problems (1972 – present)

Join museum director Michael Perkins on the third Friday of the month as he reviews the seminal events that shaped Central Florida history from the Civil War to the present. With the arrival of Disney, Central Florida became an international tourist destination. Hosting 60 million visitors each year is no easy task, and the area struggled with transportation and infrastructure woes.

Bring a lunch or let us order one for you by calling 407-836-7046 (order at least 24 hours in advance). Members free; non-members $5. With lunch: Members $8; non-members $13.
