  • I love this place- have been with my kids several times & it never gets old. We love the interactive exhibits & the film, & the coral aquarium installation... great gift shop, too, for authentic keys-...  read more »
  • An interesting stop, and air conditioned and free. Exhibits about the various depths/layers of the ocean, and a 20 min. video. Takes about 1 hr to see everything. 
  • Super friendly staff. Amazing aquarium. Feeding the stingrays was amazing. The Sharks just wow...go here. 
  • 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 was sooo much fun and u learn many thing to and theres a tresur hunt for the kids😏
  • 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.
  • Great state run aquarium like place with a very friendly staff. If you are heading to fort Zachary I recommend stopping by.
  • Free admission. Small but informative. (Tip: If you are taking the Citywide hop on hop off trolley, it will stop on the main road outside.)
