  • A very interesting find! Part archeology (Native indigenous people she'll mounds) part modern history (development into a agri community in the late 1800s) Spanish point is a window into what the real...  more »
  • We missed hooking up with the guided tour or tram so we took a stroll on our own. I would advise doing the guided tour one way or the other, I think we missed out. Many of the buildings were not open ...  more »
  • We did not know anything about the history of old Florida. This place covers from 3000 BC to the 1980s! It is a great way to learn history and get in a good walk-although you can take a golf cart driv...  more »

  • If your wondering about Spanish Point and is it worth it to go..GO!! We had a wonderful time and our tour guide Gail was great. There is walking involved, so wear comfortable walking shoes and bring some water. The tour is very informative, the grounds are beautiful and just the history of the place will amaze you. It really is a hidden gem in Florida. Who knew? I have resided in Florida and even lived in Osprey for over 25 years and did not realize the history of the area right down the street! So go on the tour it is well worth a day of fun, exercise, and knowledge. Thank you again to Gail...You made our day...Cat Murchio
  • An interesting look at early Sarasota. We took the boat tour and then the self guided walking tour of the grounds. Learned much of the history while on the boat and from the staff at the various buildings around the museum. If you are interested in early Sarasota area history you need to visit this museum. I would recommend both the boat tour and then the staff guided tour of the grounds.
  • A local treasure. Historic buildings, a museum, ancient Indian mounds that you can look into and beautiful nature trails on the water. A lovely way to spend the day. When you are done just a short distance to the south is a great place to eat on the waterfront, Evies Spanish Point Pub!
  • Love this place. My 7 year old stayed right by our tour guide lady the whole time and listened so close. This is a great place to go tour.
  • Great place to visit. Very informative guide. Interesting place on the gulf coast
