SAFETY HARBOR – The “Florida Girls and Boys and Their Toys” exhibit at the Safety Harbor Museum and Cultural Center, 329 Bayshore Blvd. S., will bring back those special memories of childhood. The exhibit runs through August.
Museum admission is a suggested donation of $4 per person. Hours are Monday–Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 727-724-1562.
The “Florida Girls and Boys and Their Toys” exhibit is on loan from the Museum of Florida History’s Traveling Exhibit (TREX) program on the history of toys. The exhibit contains thirty sepia-toned photographs of Florida pioneer children and their toys that date from 1881-1971. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the exhibit through hands-on interaction that includes an area for children and adults to try reproductions of various toys such as a puppet theatre, LEGO bricks, and Lincoln Logs.
In addition to the material on loan from the Museum of Florida History, other toys that have been loaned by the Safety Harbor community will be on display. The exhibit gives children an opportunity to see toys they may have never seen before and parents and grandparents the chance to relive their childhood memories.
