This place was a museum at one time but has not been for the last 2-3 years. It is now the office for the new high rise building being redone in downtown fort Myers. It should be removed from Trip advisor

This museum was very interesting when it was open and a lot of people were disappointed when it was decided that the space could be used for other purposes being on the Caloosahatchee
