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!
