As of April 1, officials at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village reported that the facilities will remain open during the demolition phase of the BIG ARTS’ project.
UPDATE (March 29, 2019):
Officials at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village reported today that the facilities could be temporarily closed during the demolition phase of the BIG ARTS’ project, with a reopening in approximately three weeks. Concern for the safety of the staff and guests was cited as the reason for the possible action. The board is currently discussing the matter and an update will be provided as soon as a decision is made.
ORIGINAL (March 28, 2019):
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will remain open during the BIG ARTS’ construction project. The project will continue through the remainder of the village’s season and into next season, but parking and access for village guests and volunteers will be available throughout that time.
The traditional entrance to the village has been closed off for the construction and a new temporary entrance has been made available down the road to the west at what was the exit drive. That drive will now function as both an entrance and exit access. Clear signage has been added at both places.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.
Free guided tours are at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., based upon docent availability.
Admission costs $10 for ages 18 and older; children and members are free.
