The Keys History & Discovery Center Saturday, May 20

http://www.keysdiscovery.com/

Our May Road Trip takes us to Islamorada for an adventure into the history and culture of the Florida Keys.

The Keys History & Discovery Center occupies a two-story facility encompassing 7,500 square feet. The ground floor explores unique ecology of the Florida Keys as well as the incredible history associated with the island chain — especially the history of the Upper Keys. The second floor will host a series of traveling exhibitions reflecting upon the nature, art or history of the Florida Keys.

The geographic emphasis is on the Upper Keys, but will encompass other areas to tell the stories in a way that will preserve our history in a meaningful, educational and entertaining manner. Major themes of interest are the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane, the Flagler Railroad, as well as our fishing and maritime heritage. We will regularly host exhibits and special events, as well as undertake projects that fit with our mission and vision.

The Keys History & Discovery Center features a 35-seat state-of-the-art movie theater and the Jerry Wilkinson Research Library.

General Admission: $12. Seniors: $10. Children 13 and under are free.

The Discovery Center is open Thursdays through Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and is located at 82100 Overseas Highway, MM 82, on the property of the Islander Resort, a Guy Harvey Outpost. Contact us at 305-922-2237.

Itinerary
