The Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
Check out our architecturally beautiful new Cade Museum. With weekly speakers, activities and a prime location at the "Central Park of Gainesville" Depot Park, it's worth a weekly visit.
The museum's mission (taken straight from their website): Why is creativity our passion? Studies show that it is a better predictor of success and happiness in life than the intelligence quotient. The good news is that everyone has creative potential and that creativity can be taught. Our classes, programs, and exhibits are designed to engage visitors in "purposeful creativity," the kind that leads to great inventions, new businesses and ideas that change the world. Purposeful creativity reflects the character of our namesake, Dr. James Robert Cade, the University of Florida physician that led the team that invented Gatorade in 1965. Scientist, poet, musician, and a collector of violins and Studebakers, Dr. Cade exemplified joyful creativity with a purpose.
Purchase a yearly membership and you can visit anytime for any amount of time!
For my renters at Southern Comfort Rental Properties, you can walk to the Cade Museum from The Palms or from the Duckpond homes. If you're driving, you can park in the museum parking lot. It's another great "thing to do in Gainesville."
