PALM HARBOR – After being closed to the public for most of 2016, the Palm Harbor Museum is gearing up for a relaunch in February of the new and improved facility.

Last year, the museum received a large grant from the State of Florida for renovations, leading to its closure.

With the work finally completed, the museum is planning to reopen in mid-February, showing off new exhibits and special events with a VIP gala on Feb. 17, at 6:30 p.m., for paid members.

Although this event is only open to invited guests, there will be an Open House on Feb. 18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with free admission to all.

New to the museum will a local grove house, rescued and refurbished by the museum, which will be open to the public for the first time during the relaunch.

Also, the museum reached out to the community, asking for help in creating two new exhibits: one on the history of the citrus industry in Palm Harbor and another on the history of the Post Office in the area. In the latter exhibit, JC Craver, the first post master of Palm Harbor, in the 1800’s will be highlighted. The museum will exhibit his handwritten diaries, which have been well preserved over the last few years.

Once a home of a judge’s family and then later a citrus ladder factory, the 100-year-old Hartley House is the home of the Palm Harbor museum. The museum features self-guided learning throughout the exhibits, with the goal of exploring the past and present of the Palm Harbor story.
