Fodor's Expert Review Southwest Florida Museum of History

Fort Myers Museum/Gallery

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

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.
