Museum Presents Free Kids’ Corner and Crafternoons: Kids’ Storytime

On Saturday, July 16, 2022, the museum will host a kids’ story time: “Florida Animals,” with readings of stories about animals that are ancient, native, and non-native to Florida. After the readings, kids will have a chance to create related arts and crafts projects.

Adult supervision and pre-registration are required for all Kids’ Corner and Crafternoons events. To register, call (352) 341-6428.

Families who visit may want to plan for extra time to explore temporary and permanent museum exhibits. The museum gift shop hosts a wide array of Elvis souvenirs and interesting books ranging from children’s genres, historical fiction, and local history. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a farmer’s market on the first and third Saturdays in Downtown Inverness at The Depot.

The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum is open to the public Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00am-4:00pm. For more information or to pre-register for these events, please contact the museum at (352) 341-6428 or museum@citrusbocc.com.

The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum is dedicated to the active collection and presentation of the diverse cultural and natural heritage of Citrus County and adjacent areas.

The museum is a historical and architectural gem at the heart of Downtown Inverness. The proud structure has stood for over 100 years, and although the business of the court is no longer transacted here, it is still an important pillar to the community. It is an entertainment venue, a community space, and most especially, a place of learning. The fully restored 2nd floor courtroom recalls the majesty of turn-of-the-century architecture and design and provides an intimate and unforgettable setting for fun company, and good times.

The Inverness Cultural Heritage Council, a d.b.a. of the Citrus County Historical Society, Inc. (a non-profit organization), always accepts and appreciates donations, which go toward the cause of retaining history and hosting museum events.
