This Thursday, be sure to visit the Museum for All American Fun on July 4th.  There will be bingo on the lawn at 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30.  These sets of games will last about one hour each, and everyone walks away with a prize!  Cards are $5 each and all proceeds go to support the Museum.  There will be a wide variety of prizes,  including gift certificates to Rocky's Soda Shop and Kiwi Gelato. The grand prize is a $25 gift card!


Please share this newsletter with those who may be interested, and with those who may not even know we exist!  Word of Mouth is our best publicity, so hit that forward button for us, and spread the word!

Drive for History! 

Burlingame has partnered with the Museum and will host a benefit Golf Tournament on Friday, September 6th. Tee time will be 1 pm. Burlingame will provide food after play. 


Captain's Choice, a 4-man team is $400.

Each registered player will be entered into the drawings for door prizes, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be given.  Thanks to Egolf and Mountainside Homebuilders, there will be a hole in one prize of a new car!   


This is an excellent opportunity to play a private course, and raise money for the Museum at the same time.  If fees are paid by September 3rd, a rain check including green and cart fees will be awarded in case of bad weather.   


Please contact Tony Morrow for sponsorship opportunities or more information about registering for the tournament.  

Guided Walking Tours  


The Museum regularly conducts guided walking tours in and about the City of Brevard. There are a variety of tours available. Tours required reservations since space is limited to ensure a unique and educational experience  for participants. We request that reservations be final by the preceding day by noon. The cost is $15 per person. The Tours last approximately one hour.  Each participant will receive a souvenir of their experience. Reservations can be made by calling the Museum during our regular hours, Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 am until 5 pm or by sending an email titled "Walking Tour Reservation" to rebecca.suddeth@yahoo.com.
