Members help to preserve, promote, and protect the historic Stranahan House Museum. Membership donations allow us to continue to provide free and reduced-rate programs.
Admission to the Historic Stranahan House Museum is by guided tour only.
Educated and experienced docents lead you through the museum to share the story of the house, the founding family, and the City of Fort Lauderdale. Tours last approximately 45-60 minutes. Tour groups are limited in size, and tickets are sold online and at the door.
To ensure ticket availability, online advance purchase is encouraged. Tours start promptly at their scheduled start times, so please arrive early to allow yourself ample time to find parking and walk to the property. We will be on our feet for most of the tour, so please wear comfortable shoes. Children 4 years of age and under are free to attend. However, we encourage parents and guardians to consider the maturity and attention span of their young ones. The content and pace of our tours may not align with the entertainment expectations of younger children, which could impact the enjoyment of other participants.
We love all Broward County teachers, from the first (Ivy Stranahan) to the newest! Bring your Broward County teacher ID and get a $5 discount on your guided tour ticket!
Refunds can be issued with at least 24 hours notice before scheduled tour times, so that we may make staffing adjustments with ample notice. We highly encourage you to call the office if you get lost on your way here and we will be more than happy to assist in directing you to our location. If not all parties have arrived by the start of the scheduled tour, we will call those not in attendance to find out your ETA.

The Stranahan House Museum proudly partners with the Better Days Foundation, a Florida-based environmental 501c3 with 2 fundamental goals;
to Inspire, empower, and to educate, and to lead the way by organizing Beach Cleanups as a way to bring communities together, educate people on the dangers of plastic and how a simple act like taking a walk on the beach picking up some garbage can create change.
To ensure accessibility, we have ramps leading up to the first floor of the house, allowing tour guests in wheelchairs to enjoy the entire first floor. However, our second floor is accessible only by stairs. Preserving the historic nature of the house presents challenges in altering the interior or exterior to accommodate accessibility. Nonetheless, we do offer a virtual tour featuring informational videos of each of the rooms upstairs which provide an alternative experience for those who cannot access the second floor in person. These videos also contain a sign-language interpreter translating the audio into ASL for guests with hearing impairments. We also offer a handicap accessible parking space in our parking lot, please call the office if you’d like to use the space for your tour so that we may open our gate for you. For more information about our accessibility information and our Service Animal policy, please call our office at (954)-524-4723 or email our office manager Brittany at [email protected].
