Nestled on five acres of native Florida landscaping, our flagship museum at the County Government center in Naples offers newly created exhibits and galleries that capture the full panorama of local history. Pack a picnic and linger a while in the museum's shady backyard. Then do a little exploring on your own in our native gardens, restored Naples cottages, the archaeology lab, Seminole village or Calusa Indian camp. Enlarged twice, the museum's main gallery offers over 10,000 square feet of new displays, plus a traveling exhibit room, lecture hall, and gift shop.

This little museum delighted me with its' attention to detail. Although Naples had been inhabited for a relatively short period, it has a lot of history.

An adventure in history. Old buildings, boats, Indian settlements, dinosaur skulls, and good places to run. Kids can begin to see earlier times in Florida from interesting collections and memorabilia to spark their interest.

I planned on staying a couple of hours and ended up being there six hours. It has exhibits inside and out with space for children to run off some energy.
