Marco Island Historical Museum | Olde Marco Inn

Famous for the Key Marco Cat, the Marco Island Historical Museum is an amazing museum that explores Southwest Florida’s Calusa Indians and brings this vanished civilization to life. Free to the public everyday, there are temporary and traveling exhibits that trace the settlement of Marco Island from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation, and clam cannery to the 1960s where the island saw an enormous development growth. Expect to check out amazing exhibits such as the "Wild and Remote" Photographing South Florida by Canoe", which is running from May 2nd toJuly 26th, 2016. This exhibit by photographer Constance Mier was inspired by her explorations of the Everglades and Biscayne Bay. Her photography offers a rare glimpse of these beautiful places as seen from a canoe. Although a small museum, you will be impressed with the photography and displays that shows how the island was before tourism. After an afternoon brushing up on the island's history, head back to our Marco Island inn for a relaxing dinner and cocktails at Bistro Soleil.

Address: 180 South Heathwood Drive, Marco Island, FL 34145-5028
