The Lower Gulf Coast Sights

Southwest Florida Museum of History

Updated 05/12/2014

Fodor's Review

A restored railroad depot serves as a showcase for the area's history dating to 800 BC. Displays include prehistoric animals and Calusa artifacts, a reconstructed chickee hut, a dugout canoe, clothing and photos from Seminole settlements, historical vignettes, changing exhibits, and a replicated Florida Cracker house. A favorite attraction is the Esperanza, a private, restored 1929 Pullman rail car.
