Marco Island SW Florida Living History Museum

Marco Island’s newest museum is the Collier County Museum located across from Mackle Park. The museum features information and rotating displays about the distant and recent history of Life on Marco Island. This land was once home of the Calusa Indians builders of shell mounds. Historic shell mounds still exist in the area. The Calusa lived primarily off the sea and did no agricultural gardening. Marco Island is where Mr. Cushing found the famous Key Marco Cat – an influential North American archaeology discovery. Cushing unearthed the cat in the area of what is now Old Marco, on the north end of the island. The Key Marco Cat is presently held at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. The Key Marco Cat is thought to have been made by the Calusa Indians. The Collier County Marco Island Museum brings a Calusa village to life with displays, artifacts, photographs  and paintings.
