My husband and I recently got married at The Crowley and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The location was stunning, spacious and gave us a place to let our imagination run wild and make our dream wedding a reality. I can’t brag on this place enough! Dixie and crew went out of their way to make sure we were 100% satisfied. Thank you!

Crowley Museum and Nature Center is one of my absolute favorite places to spend time at with it's natural Florida atmosphere and what feels to me how out ancestors once lived. Their abundant collection of history draws my attention every time I visit. It's a place that makes me feel at home, especially in our fast paced society. I love that they have a special place in memory of my nephew called Dustin's Garden that is not only an educational experience illustrating how the pioneers once lived off the land but a healing place for me, my friends and my family. This organization is an absolute asset to our community and we will forever support them.

Rarely do we get a chance to step back in time and see our history. Crowley is the only physical location to experience it first hand. This gem is our heritage and our future.

This place is simply magical. It’s like stepping back in time to experience Florida pioneer life. There are historical buildings, artifacts, and farm animals...including cracker cattle and horses! Explore the trails, check out the native chickee village, spot some turkeys and deer, let your kids play on the discovery path, escape the hustle and bustle of modern city life; Crowley makes this all possible. Every time I go you cannot tear me away. I feel at peace and nostalgic for the true meaning of life. The volunteers and staff are amazing and welcoming. Check it out for yourself and you will see!
