Marco Island Center for the Arts
The Center for the Arts is part of the heartbeat of the Marco Island arts scene. It is a cultural hub available to those who wish to enrich their lives. It is a home to the Renaissance Academy, the Friends of the Bach Ensemble, the Marco Writers, The Fine Arts Film Festival in partnership with the Historical Society, and working with The Marco Players to create a Theatre/Arts District on the Island.
Started in the 1970’s as a children’s play reading group, it was eventually re-created as an adult community theater known as The Marco Island Players. Originally, a for profit theater, the Players incorporated several years later as a non-profit corporation, now known as The Marco Players.
Marco Island Historical Museum
The Marco Island Historical Society was founded in 1994. The Society is dedicated to discovery, research, acquisition and preservation of the multi-faceted history of the Marco Island-Goodland region and to educating and informing the community and visitors of our dynamic heritage, culture, art, industry and science.
Known as "The Phil" by locals, this nationally renowned center for cultural activities is home to the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorale, and ranges from Broadway productions to performances by nationally acclaimed artists to outstanding children's programs.
