The Mandarin Museum is a historic house museum in Jacksonville, Florida. It showcases the local history of the former farming village of Mandarin and the shipwreck of the Steamship Maple Leaf.

The Mandarin Museum features a Cracker Homestead built in 1875. It was restored and furnished to aptly depict the life back in the early days of the area, when Mandarin was still a small farming village that grew and shipped grapefruit, oranges, and lemons, as well as other fruits and vegetables to the other Florida cities in the north that are accessible by the St. Johns River. The village was also noted for being the winter home of author Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1867 to 1884.

Aside from various historic structures, the Mandarin Museum also features artifacts and items from the shipwreck of the Steamship Maple Leaf.
