  The Citrus Museum  
 

Citrus MuseumThe “Citrus Museum”, located next to the Clifford House, is the only independently housed citrus museum located in the State of Florida, and rightly so, because at one time Eustis was known, both nationally and internationally, as the “Orange Capital of the World”. However, due to the effects of nature it can no longer claim that title.

 

The museum contains a large, formally displayed collection of labels, posters, utensils, tools, equipment, and other memorabilia, relating to the citrus industry in Florida. Included in the exhibits are some of the various devices used to measure the quality of the fruit; packers’ seals used to emboss their invoices to validate their reputation as a quality producer; a device to convert ripe “green skinned” oranges to an orange color without detracting from their quality; a “Grove Chemical Fire Engine”; and many, many more items.
