I was with a group of 10 young adults. We had a great tour of the museum then a walking tour of Everglades City. Martha, museum assistant, showed us an interesting and anecdote-filled two hours. Quite amazing how a road and city were built in the middle of a swamp nearly 100 years ago.

Great Museum - a must stop to see the past of Everglades City! It was nice to see the past of the city and how the town sticks together through generations. The artifacts were diverse and the small 5 minute movies added to the experience. Stop in for 1/2 hour to see it, plus it is free!

Nice, short and informative! The woman at the door was filled with southern hospitality and we really enjoyed the visit. Wouldn't miss it if you are in town.

Mostly informative by noticeboard type stands which are interesting, but lacks objects. Staff are friendly and helpful, I would suggest not a long stay visit but worth popping in.

Quaint little museum. Had a nice history of the Tamiami Trail. Showcased the effort of this huge project! Also, lots of history of the local area.

A lot of people put a lot of work into establishing this museum and they have done a brilliant job. It chronicles the history of the city and the awesome effort put into building the Tamiami Road. Baron Collier who was the man behind it all was a real visionary as well as having the money to put his vision... More

This little gem is a great place to see the history of the old "Alligator Alley" that I remember crossing with my parents as kid back in the 1970s. There is also several short films in the back worth watching for the history. The Native People history is so impressive and the exhibits are really amazing.

Very well set-up and interesting museum. Gives an excellent history of the area and what it took to establish the region. Does not require more than an hour and is well worth a stop. Highly recommended. The entrance fee is on a donation bases. We paid the recommended donation and definitely feel that we go more than our moneys worth.

The museum is worth the time, but the staff isn't. The "girls" were in a group gabbing and unattentive to anyone but themselves. While we were trying to read the exhibits, the staff was talking and laughing among themselves. I felt like I had invaded their private domain.
