BEST TOURIST ATTRACTION 2018



Elliott Museum

ELLIOTT MUSEUM, 825 NE Ocean Blvd., Stuart, 225.1961, www.elliottmuseum.org

The Elliott Museum is a wonderful combination of science, art, history and more that fascinates tourists and residents alike. The exhibits and collections have that wow factor that makes people want to return and to tell their friends where they’ve been.

The wide variety of exhibits, the technology, guided tours and intriguing talks add up to an outstanding place to visit for an afternoon. The museum has everything going for it, making it a fun place to be. And tourists agree. Those who visit consider it a must-see stop on the vacation agenda. “That’s what we want,” museum CEO Jennifer Esler says. “We want people to come here and enjoy it and to have fun.” Visitors love the classic cars, she says, and the Foucault pendulum. The pendulum, often found in science museums, dramatically demonstrates how the Earth rotates each day on its way around the sun.

Most of the cars are stored in a unique and very futuristic way in the museum garage. Each car sits on a metal plate that can be moved to a display position. It is the only museum in the country that does this with vintage cars.
