Sanibel Historical Museum And Village


Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, located on Dunlop Road, is an excellent way to truly experience and understand the history of Sanibel Island. This charming and unique museum is a collection of nine historic buildings moved from their original sites and restored to their original state. The oldest of the nine buildings dates back to 1896 and is the Sanibel School for White Children, there is also the first Bailey’s General Store, the Sanibel Packing House, and the old post office! Each building has a different story to tell and truly offers a better understanding of Sanibel’s history and how the islands were developed. The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village also have created a Sanibel Heritage Trail.
