Boasting of a great history, the Leesburg Heritage Museum, built in 1922, was previously the base to varied businesses and organizations like the Leesburg Organization of Commerce, the Leesburg Library, several civic clubs and the renowned Leesburg High School Prom. It primarily conceptualizes a narrative of Leesburg, through the range of artifacts and memorabilia on display. A special segment is the one which explains Leesburg’s past in context with the families, churches, social organizations and city government through diverse archives. The museum also features on the National Register of Historic Places.
A wide range of creative art exhibits and cultural events are held at this art center which also hosts various art classes and art opportunities for all ages.

Located northwest of Orlando in the city of Ocala just off of I-75, Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing is both a drag-racing and classic car museum well worth the drive. Step inside the massive building packed full of nearly every vehicle driven by Don Garlit (including the Top Fuel Swamp Rats), several of his trophies, authentic race banners from various races, endless pictures, car parts, car memorabilia and artifacts, and several other classic hot rods, too. Visitors can learn all about the history of this racer known as "Big Daddy" or "King of the Dragsters", and there is also a gift shop on site. - Diane Dilov-Schultheis
