Cape Coral is a very unique city and the museum does a good job chronicling the history and development of the area. Expect to be delighted by the displays but be forewarned of the limited operating days and hours, call ahead.

This is interesting visit to view the history of this young growing city. They have some interesting souvenirs/books. The rose garden can be beautiful when in bloom.

This is a place that all Cape Coral population and invitees should make a stop with their family. It is amazing how they treasure the cape history.

A visit here makes for an interesting afternoon. It reminded me of European museums of small cities with more memorabilia than artifacts. The Rosen brothers marketing was amusing and worth the visit just for that. Cape Coral is lucky to have captured this all under...More

If you are interested in the history of Cape Coral this is the place for you. Small museum with a lot of fun stuff to see. Call before going because hours change from in season to out of season.
