Mound House is a natural history museum contained inside a 1921 historic house, the oldest house on Fort Myers Beach, built on top of a 2,000 year old Calusa shell mound! We offer a variety of programs, tours, and events that tell the story of the 2,000 years of cultural and environmental history.
Our popular kayak tours are the best way to experience the wild beauty of Estero Bay. Our guides will take you through a maze of mangroves where we have seen herons, rosette spoonbills, dolphins, and manatees. Guides will also point out archaeological sites of the Calusa people and discuss how this native people flourished in Southwest Florida.
