Who We Are

Become a Member

The museum operates under the auspices of the North Okaloosa Historical Association, Inc. (NOHA) The Board of Directors meet monthly to recommend, approve, establish policy and receive input on the operation of the museum. We have three types of membership; one of them will fit your needs and interests. Click here to see and download our membership form. We are a 501-3(c) Non-Profit Organization we not only depend upon State and County funding, our Sponsors and Volunteers work to provide necessary operating funds to keep the museum open and operating. We maintain a sign-in sheet at the door which allows us to tabulate the numbers of visitors and patrons.


If you are interested in volunteering and wish to know museum needs, come in and visit. A snapshot of our needs: tour guide for special group tours; demonstrators for exhibits; genealogy look ups; cooks, servers for Special Events and much more.
