  • Staff and rangers very friendly and informative. Nice place to go especially on a rainy day. Plus it's free. They have educational programs for children which I think would be worth looking into.
  • It was sooo much fun and u learn many thing to and theres a tresur hunt for the kids😏
  • This is a very informative nature center. We homeschooled in Florida, and studied for a number of state level environmental competitions, and I must say that the information about the ecosystems is spot on. Great movie worth waiting for as well. All free, but donations appreciated. Worth the stop to learn about Florida!
  • It is great, but would be even better if the city expanded it. Very interesting exhibits.
  • One of the best completely free attractions in Key West. They have a lot of good information for non-locals and some nice live marine life exhibits. One of the best things there is the video on Coral Reefs in the Keys.
