Who are we?
The Cape Coral Historical Society incorporated on June 12, 1980. Three years later they purchased the original Cape Coral Country Club Pro Shop and Snack Bar building from the City of Cape Coral and started creating what would become the Cape Coral Museum of History. The Museum opened to the public in 1987 and has since expanded to three buildings filled with exhibits.
Operated by the Cape Coral Historical Society and governed by its fifteen-member Board of Directors, the Museum’s operations are supported by one full-time and one part-time staff member, with an active volunteer pool of approximately 50 individuals. The Museum is open to the public approximately 200 days per year (11am-4pm Wednesday-Friday, and 10am-2pm Saturday).
