The birth of Collier County Museums' latest museum, the Marco Island Historical Museum and campus in 2010 brings to life a long held dream of the Marco Island Historical Society.

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!
