Description

Set in Naples' restored Seaboard Air Line Railway passenger station, the Naples Depot Museum welcomes visitors back to the railroading boom days of the Roaring Twenties and explains how generations of Southwest Floridians used technology and transportation to conquer a vast and seemingly impenetrable frontier

Seminole dugout canoes, a mule wagon, antique swamp buggy, restored rail cars and exciting interactive exhibits tell the story of how trade and travel transformed Naples from a napping village of 300 souls into today's glittering Gulf coast resort.

The Naples Depot Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is conveniently located in downtown Naples.

Mission

The Naples Depot Museum is a non-profit, educational institution, governed by the Collier County Government. The museum's mission is to present the railroading days of the Roaring Twenties and show how generations of Southwest Floridians used technology and transportation to conquer a vast and seemingly impenetrable frontier. Fascinating exhibits and artifacts tell how trade and travel transformed Naples from a napping village of 300 residents to today's glittering Gulf Coast resort. The institution maintains an original 1928 railroad depot, 1947 club car, 1920s baggage car and an early 1900s caboose.
