In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our visitors and staff, we have temporarily closed to public visitation the museums and historical parks which are part of the Historical Resources Department of the Manatee County Clerk & Comptroller’s Office. The affected locations under this temporary closure include Florida Maritime Museum. These closures will be in effect until further notice. We will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments and look forward to re-opening to serve the public as soon as it is safe to do so.


This includes the cancellation of all scheduled events and programs until further notice. Refunds will be issued to all paid registrations. If you have any questions please visit our contact page to reach out to a staff member.
