    Museums about pioneer history?

    Can anyone suggest anywhere in the Orlando area that I can visit to learn more about American pioneers, particularly hands-on stuff, like a visit to a fort or 'settlement'? Seeing as we're from the UK I'd like to add a bit of American history to our trip for our teens.

    There's a fake fort on Tom Sawyer island.

    I just found this http://nbbd.com/godo/FortChristmas/ for you. I hope it helps.

    I just found this Fort Christmas - Christmas, Florida - Museum & Park for you. I hope it helps.
    thanks, that looks like a good option. I thought I heard that there is a pioneer museum somewhere too.

    It is located in Kissimmee. Not sure if it is what you are looking for though.
