Visit the Florida Historic Capitol Museum, in partnership with Camp Blanding Museum and The Institute on World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State University, to tour the new temporary exhibit Rendezvous with Destiny: Florida and WWII. When the United States entered World War II in 1941, Florida was a mostly rural and agricultural state, a relatively unpopulated place compared to the rest of the country. By the time the war ended, federal spending for military bases and an influx of service members had begun a transformation that continues to this day. This exhibit explores the conflict’s impact on Florida and the many ways in which the state contributed to the war effort. Transportation from the TSC. $7.00 fee.
