Marco Island Historical Museum

Marco Island Historical Museum 180 S. Heathwood Dr., Marco Island, FL 34145

Long famous for its Key Marco Cat, one of the most remarkable and influential discoveries in North American archaeology, the Marco Island Historical Museum explores Southwest Florida's Calusa Indians bringing this vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an immersive 3-D village. Exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation. The Traveling Exhibit Hall showcases several new exhibits throughout the year.
