Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum is led by a team of ten Board members and two Consultants. Together we bring a multi-generational perspective with diverse experiences that enhance the Friends role in supporting the Museums vision. It's also fun to note many of us are Florida natives or longtime Florida residents.
