Art & History Museums - Maitland



The Maitland Art Center is one of the few surviving examples of "fantasy" architecture in the Southeast. It features Mayan/Aztec motifs and includes 23 separate structures linked by beautiful gardens and courtyards.

Founded as an art colony in 1938, this tradition continues at MAC today, with gallery exhibitions, resident artists (Artists-in-Action), a strong curriculum of art instruction in an intimate atmosphere, and community programming.

The Maitland Historical Museum's permanent exhibition Maitland on the Move features highlights of Maitland through the years in a timeline format. Examine the days of the Timucuan Indians, early citrus groves, and check out milestones in the City's history.

The Waterhouse Residence Museum reflects the life of a middle class Victorian family during the early days of the city of Maitland. The home was originally built by Maitland resident and carpenter William Waterhouse in 1884.

Carpentry Museum was built in 1883 as the working shop of carpenter and home builder William H. Waterhouse, and now houses a permanent exhibit of nineteenth century and early twentieth century tools. This museum offers hands on activites for children and adults!

The Telephone Museum takes visitors on a tour of communications technology. Try your hand at the working switching station and then take a look at how phones have changed through history.
