Museum of the Everglades


Museum of the EvergladesA showcase for the rich and colorful history of the region, the museum displays artifacts and photographs telling the story of 2,000 years of human habitation in southwest Everglades. This lush environment shaped the lives of all who came here: ancient Calusa, Seminole, pioneer and entrepreneur.

Permanent exhibits feature Barron G. Collier's successful transformation of a pioneer village into a modern 1920's town and his fulfillment of a promise to complete the road (the Tamiami Trail) that would open the area to tourism and development.
