We are an educational and cultural institution of long-standing traditions. It is our mission to preserve, interpret and present the prehistory and history of the Fort Walton Beach community and the Northwest Florida area from 12,000 B.C. through the 1950s. We serve students, citizens, and visitors through exhibits, educational programs, publications, and special events.
Heritage Park and Cultural Center include the Indian Temple Mound Museum, Camp Walton Schoolhouse Museum, Garnier Post Office Museum, Fort Walton Temple Mound, and the Civil War Exhibit Building. Admission for all the museum buildings is purchased inside the Indian Temple Mound Museum.
