  • Between the beach in the south, and the wildlife reserve in the north, this is a little gem and well worth the visit. There are around 12 houses to visit with explanatory signs. You can walk around freely. There is no possibility for a tea, coffee or lunch, but you can tell the front desk if you want to come back later the same day to finish your tour.
  • So much history in one place. The staff so knowledgeable, the buildings so well mantained that i felt transported back in time. I would like to return and spend more time since we got there 1 hour before closing. The staff offered a raincheck ticket.
  • Inexpensive and interesting to learn the history of the island. Several buildings to walk through only the last one has air conditioning. Average time spent walking through each one was around 15.
  • What a cool place to learn about the history of Sanibel. Very well laid out and presented. I highly recommend this tour for locals and island guests as well.
  • Very interesting & historical center. Liked the way it was present to all.
