  • 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.
  • Tremendous effort to save a slice of Americana. Nicely done. Self-pace with audio guidance on demand is a great combo!
  • Rainy day in Sanibel screamed museum. We enjoyed a historical tour of original building and items from well informed story teller called Docent. Well worth the tour. Not for young children I don't think.
  • Very well preserved buildings. Good history of the area. Well worth the time.
  • The movie with clips of the past with interview with Mr Bailey was as interesting as the buildings.
