The Schoolhouse Children’s Museum located at 129 East Ocean Avenue in Boynton Beach has been established to encourage families to learn the history of Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County.  The mission of the museum and interactive learning center features hands-on, interactive exhibits about history, maritime history, marine life, local   history, period home, general store, and school life displays. The “exhibits provide an interactive glimpse of life for early Florida Pioneers – before the days of computers, cell phones, televisions or even cars."

Revisit the old Florida railroad with your children. “All Aboard,” pick up passengers, and hop onboard the Orange Blossom Express for a ride back in time to the days of the early South Florida railway industry. This child-sized version of Henry Flagler’s railroad steam engine will help children better understand the importance of the Florida East Coast Railway.  Gather the passengers, count the tickets, and board the train at the Florida East Coast Railway Train Depot replica. Through play, children will understand the importance of using trains as transportation. during the early 1900. Then head over to the original Boynton Beach Hotel, built in 1900, and set the table, arrange food on a tray, don an apron and have a tea party.

Choose a day on an old Florida farm.  Grab a bucket with the kids, toss on some overalls and prepare to experience the farm life! Children can feed and milk a life-sized cow replica and then process the milk for delivery. Children can peddle a tractor to see how their own hard work can rush the peppers through the washing, sorting, and packing process.  Forget buttons and switches that control modern-day appliances, experience home life from the early 1900’s by cooking on a wood-burning stove, pumping water into the sink with a hand pump and washing clothes in a bin with a washboard.
