The Coastal Heritage Mueum opened in 1986. The building is the former City Hall, which was built in 1939 and placed on theNational Register of Historic places May 29, 1998. Natural limestone (locally quarried), makes up the exterior of the building while the ceilings on the interior are of magnolia wood. The museum is located at 532 N Citrus Ave., just off US Hwy19, downtown Crystal River.
