Sanibel Island Historical Museum and Village

Presenting, Sanibel Island Historical Museum and Village

Sanibel, FL

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village was founded in 1984 with a mission to preserve and share Sanibel history. The story of Sanibel is told from the Calusa and Spanish eras to the early pioneer families who settled on the island in the 1800s. It tells of warriors, adventures, fishermen, farmers and proprietors.

Nine historic buildings were moved from their original sites. Each building has been restored to its original state. We also have a replica of a Packing House and a garage housing a 1927 Ford Model T truck. Volunteer docents share the stories of Sanibel with almost 10,000 visitors a year.

Unfortunately, the village suffered devastating damages during Hurricane Ian in September, 2022. All Trades, is currently bringing its full force of skilled experts in restoration to restore this historical treasure back to original condition. Starting work in July, 2023 we are looking forward to revitalizing a historical gem for Sanibel Island.  Stay tuned for more updates and images from our ongoing work
