Collier County Museums
Where History Lives
Journey back over more than a million years of Southwest Florida history at the Collier County Museums in Naples, Everglades City, Naples Depot, Immokalee and Marco Island.
Established in 1978, the Collier County Museums offer a rich sampling of the people, places and events that make this area's history and heritage well worth exploring.
We offer five separate and unique museum facilities, each providing a different glimpse into our past, where a diverse blend of old and new, history and legend, weaves its story across a glittering landscape of sun-warmed beaches, ancient cypress forests, and the sprawling grasslands of the Florida Everglades. Discover fierce saber cats and long-vanished civilizations, stunning archaeological finds and curious inventions, turn-of-the-century trading posts, cowmen, cattle ranches, and some of Florida's most adventurous and colorful characters.
It's a story that's far too big to be told in just one visit - or one museum.
