Cortez, FL – Florida Maritime Museum


The Florida Maritime Museum is a must-see amenity in the Cortez area, famous among locals and attracting tourist crowds annually. It’s an excellent place to get acquainted with the state’s fishing and maritime heritage through cultural artifacts and personal stories. The Florida Maritime Museum’s main building, historical structures, and beautiful native plant gardens with fountains stretch across four acres of land. This amenity welcomes visitors from dusk to dawn.


The museum’s main building was constructed in 1912 and first served as a school until master weaver, Robert Sailors, bought it and transformed it into his residence. He then set up two patios with water sculptures that currently are part of the museum’s exhibition. Other museum exhibits include Captain Blake Banks’ oceanic collection, realistic ship models, and a maritime library. Apart from books, the library houses boat plans and nautical charts.


Most importantly, temporary exhibitions give visitors something new to explore in the museum. The temporary exhibitions aren’t always related to fishing and maritime heritage. For instance, in 2022, the museum held an exhibition showcasing 100 years of Florida’s hurricane history.
