Historical Walking Tour

Your guide will lead you through Old Fort Lauderdale and share stories of the communities that lived along the New River from prehistoric days to the 1920s. After the walking tour, you’ll be treated to lemonade and admission to History Fort Lauderdale’s main museum, King Cromartie House Museum, and Schoolhouse Museum.
New River Dig
A family-friendly hands-on experience explores Fort Lauderdale’s rich archaeological past. You will conduct an archaeological excavation using the tools and techniques of the field. After fully documenting artifacts from your assigned investigative site, the entire team will reassemble to compare findings and formulate a hypothesis of what the site might have been.
