  • This small museum is a lovely interlude on a walk around the Key West Harbor. The very enthusiastic volunteer is happy to answer all your questions and give you an insight into a little known industry...  more »
  • A free Museum about turtles. A few photos with different varieties and stories about them. Generally anything interesting.

  • Great history of the sea turtles and the island.
  • Great history of the sea turtles and the island. It's a free museum and a great place for a little bit of knowledge. Fun turtle facts and a glimpse into the grave past.
  • Please don't eat canned turtle.
