Cape Coral historical society & Museum

About the Museum

The museum is operated by the Cape Coral Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) organization. Its purpose is to preserve the life and times of Cape Coral.

The public is welcome to tour the museum! We accept walk-in groups as well as scheduled groups. Members tour for free!

We are supported by tour fees, donations, membership dues, and a grant from the City of Cape Coral.

The museum collaborates with the Master Gardeners and the Garden Club of Cape Coral, who manage our beautiful rose garden and our Florida-Friendly landscaping; and who offer special gardening tours and programs.
