The Grant House Museum is a local history museum in Grant, Florida. It features the beautiful and historic Grant House, also known as the Bensen House and the 1916 House.

The Grant House Museum traces its roots back to 1916, when it was built by Atley Bensen for his wife, Clara and family. They lived in the house until their two older sons were of school age, when they moved to Melbourne to send the kids to school. They never gave up the home, despite the move, and went back to it afterwards. The property was donated to the Grant Community Center and the Grant Historical Society in 1984 by Russell Bensen in memory of his mother, Clara.

The Grant House Museum is currently the home of the Historic Society. It is also open for tours.
