Stopped in to see what this was about. I expected a typical tourist trap kind of thing. Surprisingly it is a very nicely presented history of the development everglades, the opening of the road from Miami to the west coast, and Everglade City. Mostly a static display with maps, photos and essays. It will take about 30 to 45 minutes... More

Nice little Museum, friendly staff. Something to while away an hour or so. Signs and direction could be clearer - just a small point.

This is a quaint local history museum that provides a really good overview to the heyday of Everglades City and making of the Tamiami Trail. We really enjoyed it!

We enjoyed this while in the "Glades". My wife usually does not like these, but we learned a lot in a short amount of time. It's worth the stop in.

Walking through and looking at/reading all the displays cannot be done in 30 minutes! Very informative. The videos are worth sitting and watching. The old laundry machines are interesting.

The old laundry is the museum. Friendly and informative staff. The videos are great and there are lots of old photos of early Everglade and the pioneering families and information on the early Calusas.

This museum is a wonderful resource in learning the history of the Everglades and the Ten Thousand Islands. Housed in the restored Everglades Laundry building, they have many good displays with good information. They also feature a crotating art display featuring local artists.

If you enjoy learning about Florida's storied history, this is a must on your list when you're in Naples or driving through Collier County on the Tamiami Trail. It is located in Everglades City which is a short detour from the Trail or a pleasant 45 minute car ride from Naples. There are enough interesting artifacts on display and informative... More

Small, but well done and very informative. Love the photos of old Florida. I learned quite a bit about the Everglades and the early days of Collier county and Everglades city.
