Think You Know the History of Venice, Florida? Test Your Knowledge During This Exhibit

Looking for something new to explore? This Wednesday, November 27th, the Venice Museum & Archives invites you to view their latest exhibit, Venice’s Inhabitants: The Unique Cultural Heritage of the Land on the Gulf!

As the title suggests, Venice’s Inhabitants: The Unique Cultural Heritage of the Land on the Gulf focuses on the diverse and rich historical heritage of the Venice, Florida region. The exhibit will go from prehistoric Venice – when woolly mammoths roamed the area – to its descendant, the elephant, being spotted crossing a local Venice bridge in the latter half of the 20th century.

The displays put special focus on Venice’s human inhabitants, including early Native American tribes, early settlers of the area, the first land developers, investors, planners, and the military men who occupied the town. Come see the development of Venice throughout the decades and learn of the men and women who had a significant impact on its unique cultural heritage.

The exhibit is the featured permanent display in the VMA’s Main Gallery focusing on the development of Venice, Florida. The exhibit answers the questions: What gives Venice its unique character? How was the Venice area developed? What were the challenges and triumphs that give Venice its unique historical character visible here now in the present day? Come discover these answers for yourself!

The mission of the Venice Museum & Archives is to collect, preserve, and interpret historical and prehistorical material relating to the city of Venice, Florida and its neighboring communities.

General admission to Venice’s Inhabitants: The Unique Cultural Heritage of the Land on the Gulf is free for all ages. For more information, contact the Venice Museum & Archives at (941) 486-2487 or www.venicemuseum.org.
