The Friends group was instrumental in the conversion of the old Laundry building into a Museum.
The mission of the Friends of the Museum of the Everglades, as stated in the by-laws, is:
"... to assist in the development of the Museum of the Everglades. The purposes for which this Corporation is organized are exclusively charitable, scientific, literary and educational ..."
The Pauline Reeves Gallery is a designated space of the museum used to showcase exhibits that are not permanent. Being a small museum does not mean stagnate or stale exhibits. Our museum staff are busy changing the exhibit in the Pauline Reeves Gallery throughout the year. Bringing a variety of stories, artifacts and pictures to the museum keeps our visitors coming back.
Throughout the year the Friends of the Museum help host, promote and fund many activities, events and festivals.
