Racing fans rejoice: At the Halifax Historical Museum, old racing photographs and artifacts sidle antique model cars. But this neoclassical-style building is also a monument to Daytona's history in general: The museum is housed in the former Merchant's Bank Building — a fixture in downtown Daytona Beach since 1910. A bank teller's window is still visible in a remote corner, and you'll also find topical displays on the Civil War and American Indians.
You'll find the Halifax Historical Museum on the mainland side of the Halifax River, less than a mile from the city center. The museum welcomes visitors Tuesday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for adults costs $7 and $1 for children 12 and younger. Admission on Thursdays is by donation. For more information, visit the Halifax Historical Museum's website.
