very educational for the whole family be sure to have the park ranger tell the historical importance of the region for shipping as well as the Dr. Gorrie stories cost is $2.00 each has nice clean restrooms easy parking
I learned more about air conditioning than I ever thought I needed to know. Dr Gorrie was a bright physician. He saved many a life with his ingenuity. If you have time to spare - or history is of great interest to you - this is an interesting visit.
This museum is about Dr John Gorrie and his invention of the first mechanical cooling machine. There are models, dioramas, artifacts of Dr Gorrie, and a video which lasts about 20 minutes. Souvenirs are also available for purchase but credit cards are not accepted. The museum is open Thursday to Monday 9-5 eastern time and entrance is $2 per person.... 更多
Small museum with exhibits on ice and air conditioning made possible by the local inventor Dr. Gorrie. It's not open everyday, so make sure you check the days. They also have a replica of his original cooling machine. They just need a few chairs for folks to sit and watch the video. Very interesting part of American History right in... 更多
This is a small town, so you don't expect high rise buildings and flashy sites. On Monday, several other historical museums ( homes of influential residents of the past ), were closed. We stumbled on this home/museum, that celebrates Mr. Gorrie's contribution to the discovery/creation of air conditioning. There were some Science fair type projects, a student produced video, and... 更多
This museum shares the story of the inventor of the first ice/air conditioner machine, Dr. Gorrie. Invented it out of necessity to combat the yellow fever brought by mosquitoes in hot months. It was very interesting and onnly cost $2.00
John Gorrie was a true American hero. He went to Apalachicola from the North to help cure yellow fever. In the process he developed a machine for air conditioning, refrigeration and ice making. He never received his just reward for this invention which he patented because Northern interests protected their sales of ice. Dr. Gorrie was also a doctor and... 更多
A great historical view of Apalachicola and Doctor John Gorrie, can be obtained by you visiting the John Gorrie State Museum. I love the local history. A must see when you visit Apalachicola Florida.
John Gorrie was little known on a national scale but well respected locally. He was a giant in his field and especially where he was and during the time period. He employed principles of refrigeration we use today in modern systems. Being a chemistry teacher I truly appreciate this. The museum has a model of Gorrie's device. It really would... 更多
My interest in medical and scientific museums led us here during our stay in Apalachicola. The museum is small; but adequately tells the story of the birth of mechanical refrigeration. Dr. Gorrie is to be honored as a man who was driven to save lives. We all appreciate Air Conditioning. It was good to see were it all began.
