We are an educational and cultural institution of long standing traditions. It is our mission to preserve, interpret and present the prehistory and history of the Fort Walton Beach community and the Northwest Florida area from 14,000 B.C. through the 1950’s. We serve students, citizens and visitors through exhibits, educational programs, publications and special events.
Heritage Park & Cultural Center includes the Indian Temple Mound Museum, Camp Walton Schoolhouse Museum, Garnier Post Office Museum, Fort Walton Temple Mound, and the Civil War Exhibit Building.
Don’t miss our summer art exhibit, Obscured by Time: The Magic of Florida, featuring the works of Hermann Trappman. The exhibit is at the Indian Temple Mound Museum May 21 to August 15.
