|Dr. John Gorrie Museum State Park|
|What appears to be a fourth |
grade science project.
The rest of the museum was based on the history of Apalachicola's industry during the relatively small time frame of when Dr. Gorrie lived there, rather than on the fascinating man himself. Unfortunately, there's more information about him on the Florida Heritage Landmark sign across the street at his grave site than in the museum "dedicated" to him.

Dr. John Gorrie at the museum.
I would not recommend a trip to Apalachicola just to see this State Park Museum. But if you happen to be in the area and have 10 minutes and $2 to kill, knock yourself out.
At least it was air conditioned.
