State Library of Florida

The Florida Collection housed in the Dorothy Dodd Room on the second floor of the R.A. Gray Building, is one of the most comprehensive collections of Floridiana. Materials covering all aspects of Florida's past, present and future are included. Books, manuscripts, maps, memorabilia, newspaper articles, and periodicals are just some of the 60,000 items to be found in the collection.

Florida State Archives

The Florida State Archives is the central repository for the archives of the State Government. It is mandated by law to collect, preserve, and make available for research the historically significant records of the State, as well as private manuscripts, local government records, photographs, and other materials that complement the Official State records. The Florida Defense Council Records and the papers of the governors during the war years are two valuable resources for researchers of the World War II history of Florida. In addition, the Florida Photo Archives provide a wealth of images related to this period of Florida history.

Museum of Florida History

Located in the lower level of the R. A. Gray Building, the Museum of Florida History collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets evidence of past and present cultures in Florida, and promotes knowledge and appreciation of this heritage. As the state history museum, it focuses on artifacts and eras unique to Florida's development and on roles that Floridians have played in national and global events. Through exhibits, educational programs, research, and collections, the Museum reflects the ways that people have shaped and reacted to their cultural and natural environments. The permanent exhibit, “Florida Remembers World War II,” takes a look back at one of the most horrific events during the 20th century and highlights Florida's participation.
