Specialty Museum Museum
The Islander Resort has dedicated a portion of the spectacular Florida Keys Conference Center for the Foundation to create the Discovery Center, offering the community a unique opportunity to create, maintain, operate and support a permanent institution that will tell the story of the Florida Keys. The geographic emphasis will be on the Upper Keys, but will encompass other areas as needed to tell the stories in a way that will preserve that history in a meaningful, entertaining and educational manner. The Discovery Center will be interesting and appealing to local residents, school groups from Monroe County and Miami Dade counties and beyond, tourists; adults, families, and scholars interested in indigenous culture of the area.

  • World class museum easily overlooked as you drive down the Keys. Be sure to stop. Excellent artifacts and displays of Keys history. The theater is fabulous. I knew a lot about Flagler's Overseas Railroad already, but I found their film to be the best single source of information for that incredible tale.
  • What a super experience! If you want to learn about the Keys it is all here. From Spanish treasure fleets to Indian raids. If the weather is rainy or hazyhotandhumid this is the place to go. Clean, safe, calm, and good for all ages!
  • Im resaerching for a book and found this museum very helpful. The Indian Key model is to die for.
  • Lots of local history of the keys and also traveling displays . Great place to bring family and visiting friends too.
  • Very nice historical museum
