Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

A great way to spend an afternoon, learned lots about the history of the area.
I loved the period houses.

We came here on the day it was raining, so we didn't get to see everything outside, but it has a nice display of the history of the area.

For the size, there was some good stuff here. Some interesting displays about local history, and despite my Dad and I knowing a fair bit about US history, we came away knowing lots of new facts which was great. Don't expect anything high-tech or sophisticated here, it's just a nice local museum and a good way to spend an hour or two

My boy loves trains and we had such a great time here. Our families 3 generations went, my Dad and my son joined me. There was so much for my 6 year old to do, he just didn't want to leave. He keeps asking to go back, so it won't be long till we return.
