Museum of the Islands, Bokeelia

#12 of 14 in Things to do in Bokeelia
The Museum of the Islands opened in 1990 after several years of hard work by Elaine Jordan, noted author, and a dedicated group of volunteers. This group completely renovated the building that was the first library on Pine Island. That spirit of dedication still exists today with our volunteers, who combined give over 1000 hours of their time each year. Today the museum is a major destination for visitors, tourists, winter residents and their guests as well as native Pine Islanders who love their past.

  • This is a perfect compliment to Pine Island and the surrounding community. Pine Island, and Matlacha are unique small island communities with deep rich history. The museum is the small. It's small in size but holds much history and is obviously easy to navigate. While there is plenty to see here, an hour or two will probably satisfy you. There's no restaurant, but a small "gift shop" area has reasonably priced items. Inexpensive too, but suggest you check for times and prices in case they change after my review.
  • A wonderful place to explore the history of the island.
