About Us

A NEW GEM IN SARASOTA'S CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS

The Florida History Expo will bring Florida History to Southwest Florida. Currently, the only extensive museum covering Florida History is based in Tallahassee, which is a 5 hour drive from Sarasota. Sarasota's location on I-75 and its close proximity to I-4, will allow museum lovers and school children from Naples, Orlando and Tampa, to be within a 2 hour drive of the Florida History Expo.


A TIME MACHINE OF HISTORY; THEN, AND NOW

The Florida History Expo, will use the very best of modern technology to bring all of the exhibits alive through the use of Augmented Reality. This new technology allows for each of the static displays to  realistically "come alive" in the exhibit. For example, the skeleton of a prehistoric Florida animal from 10,000 years ago would be enhanced by the moving 3D image of a live version of the ancient animal entering the exhibit area. To link the extinct animal to its modern day descendant, Augmented Reality would then allow a moving 3D image of the modern animal to enter the exhibit, thus bridging history from then to now.
