About the Elliott Museum
The Elliott Museum’s mission is to inspire creativity through exhibitions and programs about art, history and technology for the people who live in and visit the Treasure Coast of Florida. Named after prolific inventor Sterling Elliott, the museum hosts a dynamic and interactive collection of antique automobiles, vintage boats, an impressive baseball collection and a deep trove of Treasure Coast histories and stories sure to delight all ages. In addition, the museum is proud to display an array of traveling exhibits designed to challenge and inspire families and children. Both permanent and visiting exhibits are always changing and evolving, be sure to come back again and again to see what we have in store for you. The Elliott Museum also operates the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, Martin County’s oldest building and the only life-saving station of its kind still in existence. Travel back in time as you imagine how difficult life was on this outpost and learn about the many dramatic sea rescues that have taken place over its 120 year history. The House of Refuge is located at: 301 SE MacArthur Boulevard on Hutchinson Island. You can purchase a combination ticket that gives you a discount for both Elliott Museum and House of Refuge.
