Overview
More
Long hidden on the fringe of Florida's Gulf coast and overlooked by developers until well into the 1880s, Naples' catalyst for settlement finally arrived forty years later when two rival railroads rolled into town within ten days of each other. Set in Naples' restored Seaboard Air Line Railway passenger station, the Naples Depot Museum welcomes visitors back to the railroading boom days of the Roaring Twenties and explains how generations of Southwest Floridians used technology and transportation to conquer a vast and seemingly impenetrable frontier.Seminole dugout canoes, a mule wagon, antique swamp buggy, restored rail cars and exciting interactive exhibits tell the story of how trade and travel transformed Naples from a napping village of 300 souls into today's glittering Gulf coast resort. The Naples Depot Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is conveniently located in downtown Naples.

The depot museum offers free admission, and although it is a small museum, there are several interesting exhibits that are very well presented. The highlight for our family was the Lionel train museum that shares a building with the depot museum. This is only open...More

We took our 2 and 3 year old kids here and they just loved the place - they didn't want to leave. We took two rides on the little train around the grounds - big fun for the kids. Then went and saw the exhibits...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum and it gave us fresh insight into transport and it's development in the area. I would recommend a visit to a very good facility.

Was surprised by the amount of historical items and information. We went for the exhibit on cemeteries, but spent a lot of time learning about local history

This is a nice free little museum that is worth stopping at if you are in Naples. There are several interesting displays inside, train cars outside and the building itself is worth the stop.

Even though admission is free, it's not worth the stop. There are only three rooms of pictures and two antique cars. There are trains on the property but they were locked up for the day.
