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.

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