A good course but with the high season kind of needs work. They try but with the large crowds it got to be hard. I give them credit for doing their best this time of year. Will go again.

The entrepreneurial geniuses that envisioned Cape Coral and had the drive & ingenuity to make it a reality are the highlight of this remarkable museum. Pictures, marketing materials, artifacts have been lovingly assembled and bring the history of this area to life. The docents are very knowledgeable and readily share with visitors all they know. To think a place could... More

My husband and I visited the Cape Coral local Museum to learn more about the history of Cape Coral. They had history back to the beginning of Cape Coral. It was interesting to see the development of the period. The military service section was fantastic. Also, the exhibition of the arrowheads collection donated by a patron from the Midwest. The...

The museum was quite small. For a donation, it was interesting to go and get more history on Cape Coral.

A veritable treasure trove about the creation of Cape Coral in the late 1950s and early 1960s. This "mail order" subdivision of 340,000 lots (yes, you read that right) was promoted like no other. The museum also has displays of life on hardscrabble Redfish Point before it was transformed with over 400 miles of man made canals. I was also... More

If you have ever been to a museum in a big city (Miami, NYC, Paris...) you'd be very disappointed with this one.
