Cape Coral Florida Historical Museum - See exhibits, artifacts, and collections about Cape Coral's interesting history.

The Cape Coral Historical Society was started to record the history of the Cape and also of Southwest Florida.

The museum has several gardens and a collection of buildings in the Old Florida Cracker style ........... they expanded in 2012 with a brand new building!

One of the buildings houses the Historical Society with exhibits of photographs, aerial maps, artifacts, documents, memorabilia, a reference library, and educational materials.

This building was originally the clubhouse at The Cape Coral Country Club. it was moved to Four Freedoms Park in 1977, and then was moved to it's present location in 1983.

The other buildings have fossils, shells, and exhibits that show what life was like in earlier days.

Some of the things you will see are an example of a Florida Cracker House, and military artifacts.

Connecting the buildings are the lovely butterfly and herb gardens.
