If you reside in the Cape and are interested in history, this is entertaining. There isn't much ancient history to a place less than 65 years old, but I found this a good way to spend a rainy afternoon and would recommend taking your children there as well.

NOT OPEN! We tried to visit the museum but unfortunately it was closed on a Saturday afternoon. For some reason Cape Coral in August is classed as "out of season". A shame but would try to visit again.

If you are into history or just looking for something different to do, this museum is very interesting. They show you a short video and then you are on a self guided tour through 3 air conditioned buildings. The exhibits they have include the early days, way before the City of Cape Coral was even conceived. There is no admission... More

Great for history buffs. Don't bring the kids. It's a very small place with helpful people. If you want a good perspective of Cape Coral and what life was like pre-1960 it's a must stop.

This is a small museum but so much history is backed into those buildings. Try to get a guided tour - you'll learn more about the history of Cape Coral. They also have DVD's there about the history and making of Cape Coral that are well worth buying.

from pasture to big city in 50 years. The unbelievable history of Cape Coral with its 480 miles of canals. The museum is a very worthwhile place to find out all about it.
