    History Fort Lauderdale focuses on teaching history. We use local history as a microscope for learning American and world history. For, example, we can show the impact of national events such as the Great Depression and other economic developments such as the expansion of railroads upon a community. We can demonstrate what the World Wars meant to a community and what courage individuals found in themselves and what sacrifices that families were called upon to make. We bring history home, close and personal. History Fort Lauderdale and its museums provide a wider window to the world for the students who participate in our programs and for all of the adults and families who come here each year. While they are learning local history, they also are absorbing the values and cultural attributes intrinsic to the American experience.

    Plan a field trip to the History Fort Lauderdale and experience our various interactive educational programs. History Fort Lauderdale offers programs dedicated to the history of Broward County and Fort Lauderdale where students will be able to understand our rich cultural past through interactive modules. Interested in science? History Fort Lauderdale offers several science based hands on programs where students discover how history and science can be entwined during the learning experience. If you decide to join us at History Fort Lauderdale, each field trip participates in a tour of the main History Museum, the Pioneer House Museum, and the 1899 Schoolhouse Museum as well as the program(s) of your choice.
