The main reason to visit this tiny museum is to check out the building, the former Boca Raton town hall (1927), topped by a glimmering gold dome.

The society runs a guided trolley tour on the second Thursday of the month from January through May (tickets $20). The 1½-hour docent-led trip takes you to the Florida East Coast Railway Depot , a Mediterranean Revival train station built in the 1930s for Flagler's railroad, as well as the Old Floresta Historic District , a 1920s-era residential neighborhood. Alternatively, take a guided walking tour of the fabulous Boca Raton Resort & Club, a historic hotel from the 1920s by architect Addison Mizner.
