History in the Making
Welcome to the Cape Coral Historical Museum. Cape Coral is a vast, modern city that grew out of land-deals and salesmanship. Our campus in Cultural Park features three exhibit buildings, with sustainable Florida landscaping and our historic rose garden.
We invite you to view our exhibits, where you can experience the way it was “back in the day.” Examine our collection of ancient Native American artifacts. Trace our transformation from cattle ranches and farms to a city of canals. Learn about the developers who created a global marketing machine and enlisted Hollywood stars to invent our tropical paradise. Join us!
One of the joys of the museum experience is finding artifacts of days gone by and learning the role they played in daily life many years ago.
Here's this month's puzzler. What is this device?
This is a popcorn popper, probably from the late 1800s early 1900s. It was used over a fire or hot stove to pop popcorn. This was a special treat for our pioneers; often enjoyed during holidays, particularly Christmas and Independence Day.
No microwaves or air-poppers back then!
We invite you to visit the museum and have fun rediscovering our past!
On the Road!
We are very proud of our facilities at Cultural Park; but we've enjoyed creating a special attraction that's available for only a few more weeks.
It's a temporary traveling exhibit at the Cape Coral Library located on Skyline and Mohawk.
We invite you to check it out -- but remember, it's in-place only through September 30.
Join us on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from Noon till 5pm at the Cape Coral Historical Museum, 544 Cultural Park Blvd.
Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact: 239-772-7037 or email@example.com

I hope you've enjoyed your summer. Our days have been filled with unexpected maintenance and with some rearranging of exhibits.
That work is behind us, and we're thrilled to be back to our regular schedule.
We have some exciting new ideas and events in the works, and we look forward to bringing them to life.
Many thanks to our loyal volunteers and our Board of Directors for making our museum a truly community-based attraction.
We'll continue to keep you up to date here on the website and on social media. By the way, be certain to "like" us on FaceBook.
"I Didn't Know That."
Our archives and exhibits reveal Cape Coral's fascinating history. Our city is still young, but we have been home to generations of families and businesses that have left their mark and made us who we are today.
The museum is where our history lives.
