We often start our visit to Pine and Bocilla Islands with a stop at this museum. It gives our visitors an idea of where they are and why that area is important.

This museum has Calusa Indian artifact, many pioneer antiques and is a fun lace to send an hour. The person who was watching over the museum "Jerry" was knowledgeable and interesting.

Small Museum, but full of information on shells, island history, people... We liked it very much and think it is worth your time! Combine with other adventures on Pine Island or Matlacha.

A very nice museum that contains a ton of history of the area and the surrounding islands. There is a ton of great history around this area, going all the way back to the native Calusa.
