"The Southwest Florida Museum of History is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and interpretation of history and traditions, with particular emphasis on Fort Myers and Southwest Florida."

The Southwest Florida Museum of History is located at 2031 Jackson Street just one block south of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in historic downtown Ft. Myers. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.

Housed in the former Atlantic Coastline Railroad depot, the Museum is home to the history of Southwest Florida. Paleo Indians, the Calusa, the Seminoles, Spanish explorers, and early settlers are just a few of the people you will meet as you view our exhibits. An authentic replica of a pioneer "cracker" house, a 1926 La France fire pumper, and a 1929 private Pullman rail car are also part of the tour.

In addition, the museum also houses an extensive artifacts collection detailing early civilization, the Fort, the first settlers, the cattlemen, turn of the century, the military and agriculture, boating and fishing industries in Fort Myers.


This award-winning traveling exhibit comprised of 84 rare photographs documents the Beatles’ first television performances and concert tour in North America in 1964, marking the launch of the British Invasion.
