The Museum Campus
Named for Jack and Leonard Rosen, founders of Gulf American Land Corporation, whose vision drove the design and establishment of Cape Coral. Built in 1962, the Rosen building originally sat on the Cape Coral Country Club grounds as the pro shop and snack bar. It now houses the Museum front desk, Museum Store, and administrative offices.
Gulf American Land Corp. Building
Built in 2003, the GAC building houses exhibits that chronicle the history of Cape Coral from the areas of earliest settlement by the Calusa and the Seminole all the way through to the purchase and development of the land by the Gulf American Land Corporation. The building houses also our Archives which includes, but is not limited to photographs, original documents, scrapbooks, maps, letters, minutes, and more.
The Kelly Building was donated by Clint and Sue Kelly, long-time residents of Cape Coral. The building, which opened in 2009 chronicles the growth of the city’s businesses, government, schools, community services, and parks from the city’s incorporation in 1970 through today.
Outside the Museum guests can immerse themselves in the unique environment of Southwest Florida with a walk through our Memorial Rose Garden, certified Butterfly Garden and Natural Gardens. Cared for by the Lee County Master Gardeners and the Cape Coral Garden Club, our gardens are maintained to the highest standards and provide a wonderful addition to the Museum tour.
