About Destin History and Fishing Museum

Destin History and Fishing Museum spotlights the town's transformation from a bustling fishing village to a colourful Gulf of Mexico beach resort. The museum is filled with fascinating exhibits on the Florida Panhandle’s local history, heritage and culture.

Exhibits on Native American tribes recall Destin's role as an important hunting and fishing ground. Anglers will love the chance to get up close with more than 70 mounts of local fish found in the waters around Destin. In the outdoor section, you can admire historic watercraft, such as the “Primrose” seine boat and six-metre long “Lil Jimmy” mullet boat.

If you're wondering why Destin's beaches are so sugar-white, check out the geology exhibition on the link to quartz particles from the Appalachian Mountains. Visit the gift shop to browse books, apparel and souvenirs inspired by local history.

Getting there

Destin History and Fishing Museum is located in the city centre opposite the community centre. Parking is available at the museum and throughout Downtown Destin. Pensacola International Airport is a 1.5-hour drive away.
