About the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum:

The mission and the purpose of the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum is to collect, preserve, and present information and artifacts relevant to the past and evolving history of Boca Raton and to maintain a visible role in the education and the advocacy of historic preservation in the community, particularly through its ongoing project, History Alive! Although closed in recent months due to the COVID pandemic, BRHS has used this time to completely reimagine and renovate the museum, which will officially re-open later this year and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2022.
