The Collier County Museum was established with the principal purposes of preservation and education: seeking to collect and preserve historical objects and artifacts from the county's past and to provide related historical research, interpretation, and educational activities for the public.
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.
