Museums & Galleries

Built in 1901 by the “Father of Fort Lauderdale,” Stranahan House also referred to as the Pioneer House, is the oldest residence in the city. In 1984, this mansion was opened for public viewing as a house museum and almost 10,000 tourists visit this landmark annually. Now a historic riverside museum, the elegantly restored house contains antiques, turn-of-the-century furnishings and old photographs of the area. It is also an example of classic Florida Frontier architecture. The house has previously been used as a post office, town hall and general store. The events hosted here are as interesting as the collection and includes tours, the Pineapple Jam, the Peter Pan Pirate Party and more. This lovely museum can also be hired for private events and special celebrations.

Location:  335 Southeast 6th Avenue, Off Las Olas Boulevard
