“Small museum, yet comprehensive and had decent technology”

Southwest Florida Museum of History
Ranked #29 of 118 things to do in Fort Myers
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 August 2013

I recommend this museum - they covered everything from the paleological life forms of the area to the present day. They had interactive exhibits, such as the affect of melting ice-age glaciers on the sea level around Florida. They also gave each visitor a device that would play a recorded message at each exhibit. The guides were polite as well. Very well run.

A small museum, but was a great outing with the grandkids, who enjoyed it and found it interesting and entertaining. Staff attentive and helpful. Favorite was the train.

This museum would attract all ages and not just kids. From the prehistoric creatures to almost nowasdays, it fully explains the history of Southwest Florida/Fort Myers. It was very interesting and I'm very glad I went because now I know what the scoop is about this super interesting place.
