Historical Village To Hold Free Admission Day

nr-free-day-is-6-18-2015For the third year in a row, the Sanibel Historical Museum will offer free admission for all visitors on Saturday, June 18.

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village tells the story of Sanibel from the Calusa and Spanish eras to the early pioneer families who settled on the island in the 1800s. It tells of warriors, adventurers, fishermen, farmers and proprietors. The island’s way of life is recreated in a village of 11 structures that have been relocated from their original sites, restored and preserved. Visitors trace the footsteps of the island’s past as they meander along a handicapped-accessible boardwalk lined with buildings that represent “old Sanibel,” as island pioneer Sam Bailey used to say. Visitors can tour a pioneer home, fishing cottage, post office, schoolhouse, tea room, general store, and more.

Learn more at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A full guided tour takes place at 10:30 a.m. at no additional charge and depending on the availability of a docent. The museum closes for the summer August 1 and re-opens October 18. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to all buildings. Aside from Free Admission Day, admission is $10 for adults (18 and over). Members and children are free. For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org
