Island Reporter, Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will close on July 31 and reopen on Oct. 15.

Meanwhile, it remains 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.
