The Florida Pioneer Museum is a museum and historic site in Florida City, Florida. It tells of the early life in the state of Florida through historic displays and exhibits.

The Florida Pioneer Museum traces its roots back to 1962 when the Plantation Key ?scientific writer? Dr Zim offered his collection of ?Indian items?. Of course, in order to showcase this core collection, a venue is required. Necessary arrangements were done, including the acquisition of the Florida East Coast Railway Station Agent?s house and the land donation from Henry and Jacqueline Brooker.

Today, the Florida Pioneer Museum features several historic items and even structures that tell of pioneer life. They have on display an antique car, a pioneer community meeting space, memorabilia, and other records. The museum is housed in a reproduction of the early 20th century East Coast Railway agent?s house as the original one was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
