Museum Day – Cracker Country
On Saturday, September 18, 2021, Cracker Country, a living history museum located on the Florida State Fairgrounds, will open its doors free of charge as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day. This nationwide event offers free admission to visitors presenting a Museum Day ticket at a participating museum or cultural venue.
During Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day Live, visitors can tour historic buildings and grounds that represent home life, commerce and transportation as it was in many rural Florida communities just before the turn of the 20th century. See our model train display, meet a 19th century Florida cow hunter and help with the everyday chores like churning butter and laundry with an old-fashioned washboard.
On September 18 Cracker Country will be open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Parking: Enter the Fairgrounds via MLK Parking Entrance and park near Gate 2. $8.00 per car. $16.00 per RV/Bus/Oversized vehicles.
