My husband and I enjoyed learning about various aspects of Cape Coral history- early settlers, the Gulf American Company developments, and the natural environment. They have a reference library, a garden with native plants, and a small gift shop. The guide was quite informative. My only ( slight) criticism is that some of the displays were not very professional, and... More

I went to take this tour while my other friends watched football. I found the history of Cape Coral interesting and the guide very informative. I had lots of fun tid bits to tell my friends when I got back from this historical society.

This is interesting visit to view the history of this young growing city. They have some interesting souvenirs/books. The rose garden can be beautiful when in bloom.

Cape Coral is a very unique city and the museum does a good job chronicling the history and development of the area. Expect to be delighted by the displays but be forewarned of the limited operating days and hours, call ahead.

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...
