Collier County Museum

Collier County Museum

Surrounding the museum, historic gardens, restored cottages, a swamp buggy, and a logging locomotive bring period appeal to this county site.

Journey back over 10,000 years of Southwest Florida’s unique past at the Collier County Museum. Learn about mastodons and fierce saber cats, Calusa and Seminole Indians, and the rugged pioneers who settled one of America’s last frontiers. Visitors can enjoy five acres of native gardens, two early Naples cottages, swamp buggies and a logging locomotive. Special programs and exhibitions are presented throughout the year as well.

We hope you enjoy our work.
