Nestled on five acres of native Florida landscaping, our flagship museum at the County Government center in Naples offers newly created exhibits and galleries that capture the full panorama of local history. Pack a picnic and linger a while in the museum's shady backyard. Then do a little exploring on your own in our native gardens, restored Naples cottages, the archaeology lab, Seminole village or Calusa Indian camp. Enlarged twice, the museum's main gallery offers over 10,000 square feet of new displays, plus a traveling exhibit room, lecture hall, and gift shop.

Probably only plan a half hour or so here - it is interesting but not a place to spend a couple of hours.

We have been attending the bi-weekly lectures and find them more and more informing. The visiting exhibits only add to the enjoyment. We have visited all five museums in the system and they are all worth the trip.

This is, indeed, paradise with tall Florida vegetation and nature all around. For a nice donation from each person, a group of 17 girlfriends had lunch in the round picnic tables in the beautiful gardens. We felt so elegant! We toured the displays and socialized. A granddaughter will be married here. We made arrangements with the office. We also enjoyed... More

The museum presents the history of the area and is very well done. There is a good mix of verbiage, pictures and artifacts. The outside displays are good too. The Collier County Museum and it's nice volunteers greatly exceeded our expectations. Both parking and admission are free.

When I first drove up, I didn't expect much. The outside doesn't give any hint of what's inside. This museum houses artifacts and shares stories about Naples past. The displays are wonderful insights into the development of this area from the first inhabitants onwards. It includes samples of wildlife and settler life, including the native peoples that first inhabited the... More

This museum has exhibits covering the history of the southern Florida Indians and first settlers. It has an indoor set of exhibits that are very well done for the limited amount of space they have. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is an outdoor set of exhibits and areas to walk through. The outdoor exhibits range from very... More

This was our first visit,even though we are residents of Naples. It is so interesting and the grounds are beautiful When you are in the middle of the property,you cannot hear the traffic on the busy streets outside on 41. Very interesting and had an added bonus of a showing of local artists ....and it is FREE!

This lovely little museum deserves some time. On a windy day , too cold for the beach we headed to this museum. The grounds could use some tending but the museum itself is well done . Excellent displays and a wonderful giant sloth skeleton greets you at the door. Kids and adults will love the local history.
