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!

This museum is hidden on the grounds of The Collier County government site, enter from either collier blvd or Airport-Pulling and follow the signs for the Museum. There are several... More

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...

Hit this museum to learn the basics of the counties history or take your time and pick up some fun more detailed info. The museum offers great special programs monthly in season and also puts together a fun and education Old Florida Days Festival. This is a little gem.

We thought this would be a small museum that we would see in less than an hour, we were wrong. This was much more and very informative. The museum also covers a lot of ground and is not just in one building. The only negative is that there us very little signage to indicate the location of the museum which... More
