Imagining La Florida: Ponce de León and the Quest for the Fountain of Youth
10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Museum of Florida History, 500 South Bronough Street, Tallahassee, Florida
Start your voyage aboard a replica Spanish galleon and travel 500 years back in time to explore Florida’s early colonial history at the new temporary exhibit at the Museum of Florida History.
Imagining La Florida: Ponce de León and the Quest for the Fountain of Youth is an immersive exhibit that recounts Florida history from the preparation of Ponce de León’s voyage from Spain to the establishment of Fort Mose in 1739. Organized by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) of Spain and the Spain-Florida Foundation and curated by Dr. J. Michael Francis, it is a collaboration of the Spanish Embassy in Washington D.C., and the Spanish Consulate in Miami. The exhibit is divided into four distinct sections, each chronicling a different aspect of Florida’s early colonial history. Begin your voyage aboard a replica Spanish galleon in Seville, Spain, and travel through the history of early Florida, taking in such sights as the founding of St. Augustine, the rich native populations, and the founding of Fort Mose, the first free black settlement in the United States. The exhibit concludes with a holographic fountain, where visitors discover the truth about one of the most enduring foundation myths in U.S. history, Ponce de León’s quest for the fountain of youth.
This temporary exhibit is on display from November 14, 2013 until February 23, 2014, at the Museum of Florida History. Admission and parking are free.
