Welcome to our website! 

The Marion County Museum of History and Archaeology is a research and teaching institution located at 307 S.E. 26th Terrace, Ocala, Florida, on the McPherson County Government Complex.

Our displays, exhibits and programs cover 13,000 years of human history in this wonderful county. 

Our Museum's Grand Opening was on September 18th, 2011 and we have now modified several areas in the museum since the opening, so be sure and stop by to see the "Changes".
