The Jacksonville Museum and Cultural Center hasn’t opened yet, but a piece of it is already rolling around on four wheels. Through Downtown tours using street-legal golf carts, the center will raise money to build historical exhibits and open soon Downtown.

On these “I love Jacksonville” Zip Tours, which run every Friday from noon to dusk, you will zip past iconic Downtown landmarks to learn about Jacksonville’s roots.

Meanwhile, with revenue generated from the tours, the center is building 12 template tradeshow-like exhibits that will spotlight Jacksonville’s different eras of culture and history.

Founder Sherry JHill is a fifth-generation Jacksonville resident, and she said she wants the community to come together and share in the city’s identity through this center.
