Historic Pensacola Village is a historic house museum and museum complex in the heart of downtown Pensacola, consisting of twenty eight properties in the National Register, listed Pensacola Historic District. Ten of these properties are interpreted facilities that are open to the public. The Village showcases nearly 450 years of Florida History. Visitors will walk through the 1805 Lavalle House, 1871 Dorr House, 1890 Lear-Rocheblave House, and the 1832 Old Christ Church, one of the oldest church buildings in Florida, known for its architecture and preservation. Historic Pensacola Village also offers four self-guided museum exhibits. Inside the Museum of Industry, one may explore the natural resources, industries, railroads, and deep-water port that tied Pensacola to world markets. Peek into quaint shops on the wooden sidewalk or climb aboard the trolley in the Museum of Commerce, a recreated late 1800s downtown Pensacola streetscape. Visit the Roaring Twenties of Pensacola in the Manuel Barrios Cottage and find the beginnings of our technological world. Early African American heritage from Spanish exploration to the age of Reconstruction is displayed in the Julee Cottage, highlighting our rich and fascinating multi-cultural history. Our flagship museum, the T. T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum, originally built in 1907 as City Hall is a magnificent Spanish Revival building that displays portions of T. T. Wentworth, Jr.’s vast collection. The Pensacola Children's Museum is housed in the 1885 Arbona Building and provides two floors of interactive, hands-on exploration of Pensacola history.
