Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center
129 E Ocean Avenue.
Boynton Beach, Fl 33435-4452
The schoolhouse was built in 1913 with Boynton Beach High School built beside it in 1927. Neglected and targeted for demolition, residents fought long and hard to save these historic buildings. They were added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1994 and underwent a $14 million dollar restoration in 1998-99 that returned both structures to their former beauty.
For most visitors, the most popular of the Boynton Beach attractions would be the fabulous beaches in the area. The four closest are Oceanfront Park, Gulfstream Park, Ocean Ridge Hammock Park (a favorite hangout of the pre-Columbian Jeaga) and the Boynton Beach Ocean Inlet Park.
