  • We walked around after hours & did a free self guided tour by reading the markers at each stop. It's $10/adult, kids are free if you go while it's open. I don't think the kids would have enjoyed a paid tour as much.
  • Best to do this early in your visit to fully appreciate the island
  • The staff are local residence who love history. Go if you want to know more about the island's history and why people origionally settled it. Kids may not like this as it is just old homes with old stuff it them. Cost was $5.00, spend as much time as you like and ask as many questions as you like.
  • This is wonderful place to visit. We love history, and love learning about local history. The staff was very friendly, and really knew a lot about Sanibel history.
