Silver Spring History Museum
Located among some cozy shops and a really kickin' little cafe (that serves up a tasty BBQ chicken sandwich) lies a museum of memorabilia and artifacts focused on Silver Springs' history. Therein you can learn all sorts of nifty stuff about the park, the glass bottom boats, the springs and the numerous commercials, TV shows and feature films that were shot there.
I'm a big fan of paper ephemera. Housed in a number of glass display counters are a variety of pamphlets and signage from days gone by that really capture the essence of the Springs a half-century ago and even longer than that.
