New Traveling Exhibit: "Spanish Conquistadors in Florida"

May 2018 through July 2018

Florida Historian Michael Gannon once quipped, "By the time the Pilgrims came ashore at Plymouth, St. Augustine was up for urban renewal." Florida's history reaches much further back than many people realize, beginning with the indigenous cultures that thrived here for thousands of years. European contact came to Florida much earlier that other parts of North America as well, with the arrival of Juan Ponce de León in 1513..

This began a period of Spanish exploration and conquest in Florida that lasted over 200 hundred years. Come explore our exhibit and learn about the complex relationship between the Native Peoples of Florida and the Spanish as trade flourished in what is known as the Colombian Exchange. Get to know Juan Ponce de León, Pánfilo de Narváez, Hernando de Soto, and Pedro Menéndez de Aviles and even pose for a selfie with these Spanish Explorers. Guests can even take a step back in time and follow de Soto's path through what is now Citrus County and catch a glimpse of what life was life for those who traveled across the sea to seek fortune in Florida.
