Owner description: 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.

Always enjoy local museums to learn about the surrounding area I am visiting. It is nice to find something that is not crowd and has a lot to offer. The best part of it is that it is free. I truly enjoyed seeing the 200 plus animals (stuff) they had on display. It is always amazing to see what is... More

I brought my family to this museum expecting the worst. We have a free museum here in lake county and it's pretty dull. We were very pleasantly surprised. There is quite a bit of information about the native Americans and early settlers on the inside portion of this museum. There is also alot to see and do outside. They have... More

We were expecting rain so looked for something different to do & were pleasantly surprised. Lots of interesting info & artifacts from Naples' past. Indoor & outdoor exhibits & probably enough to keep kids busy too. Free, but accept donations, & close to downtown/5th Ave. Now I know what a chickee hut is!

Small museum within the courthouse compound - interesting but shouldn't take more than an hour or two, maybe less, depending on whether you read every little thing.

Right when we walked in there were two volunteers to greet us and answer any questions we may have. They offered assistance on where things were located. We went here to view the Clyde Butcher photo exhibit of Cuba. The exhibit was small but very informative and of course had beautiful photographs taken by him. The exhibits change regularly so...
