The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village has re-opened for season!
Founded in 1984 with a mission to preserve and share Sanibel history, the story of our island is told from the Calusa and Spanish eras to the early pioneer families who settled on the island in the 1800s. Seven historic buildings have been moved from their original sites to the Historical Village, and each has been restored to its original state. Volunteer docents share the stories of Sanibel with almost 10,000 visitors a year.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Full-guided tours take place at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no additional charge, depending on docent availability.
The Sanibel Historical Village is at 950 Dunlop Road, adjacent to BIG ARTS. There is handicap access to all buildings. Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free.
