The Marco Island Historical Society’s Monthly Programs & Special Events

Often we think of “History” as something that happened a long time ago. But history is something that is developing every moment of the day. True, Marco Island’s history goes back thousands of years, but some of the most exciting events have occurred in the last 50 or 60 years. 

We invite you all to share our evenings of history on Marco Island at the Rose History Auditorium. Please join us monthly at the MIHS museum complex. Cost for the evening is $5 for non-members and free for MIHS members.  Upcoming programs  and other special events are displayed below.  Click on an image to enlarge it, then advance through the set by clicking on the arrow in the enlarged flyer.

Museum.jpg-for-web.jpgThe mission of the Marco Island Historical Society is to preserve and to share the history and heritage of Marco Island and the surrounding community.

The Society was founded in 1994 and is dedicated to discovery, research, acquisition and preservation of the multi-faceted history of the Marco Island- Goodland region. This museum complex gives the Society a physical place to fulfill their goal of educating and informing the community and visitors of our dynamic heritage.  The museum campus uses a unique motif in its exploration of Marco Island’s history from the life of the Calusa Indians and the pioneer days of the white settlement to what it has become today.

Additionally, within the museum, a traveling exhibit gallery and a museum gift store can be found.  The campus is further enriched by the beautiful Rose History Auditorium (RHA), a multi-functional facility that is available for rent for a variety of private and public functions and celebrations!
