The Burt Reynolds & Friends Museum

100 N. U.S. Hwy. 1
Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre
Jupiter, FL, 33477
TEL: (561) 743-9955

The Museum: You may know him only as the star of Smokey and the Bandit, but residents of Jupiter, Florida, also know him as a generous contributor, establishing a number of theater-centric programs since purchasing a ranch here some 30 years ago. Volunteers run this not-for-profit museum, dedicated to preserving the legacy of “the Bandit.”

 

The Exhibits: Sure, there are keys to the 10 plus cities he’s received, notes from A-listers like Jack Lemmon and Elizabeth Taylor, and an impressive collection of sports memorabilia, but the piece de resistance is the sleek black Firebird Trans Am the beer-smuggling Reynolds, a.k.a. Bo “Bandit” Darville, drove in the classic 1977 film, Smokey and the Bandit.

 

Admission: $5

 

Friday–Sunday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
