A new 45,000-square-foot Gulf Coast Museum of Military History & Veterans Advancement Center is planned on a 4.5-acre lakefront property under contract at Alico ITEC Park in Fort Myers. The growth and expansion initiative was announced Monday at the Naples Airport, where the Naples Museum of Military History has outgrown its longtime location. The local museum’s collection of more than 13,000 military artifacts from all branches of the military from the Revolutionary War on will be relocated to the new Gulf Coast Museum of Military History when completed. The future home of Florida Gulf Coast University’s Museum Studies Program also will call the museum home. The adjacent Veterans Advancement Center will include multiple local and national veteran’s assistance programs and has been developed to provide aid, support, guidance and treatment to service members and veterans.
