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.Use our Islamorada trip itinerary planning website to visit Florida Keys History & Discovery Center on your trip to Islamorada, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
Florida Keys History & Discovery Center reviews
It is a little hard to find the museum as it is in the Tides Resort. GPS got a little confusing. It is worth finding museum as they cover Keys history with nice displays and lots of maps and photos... more »
We decided to visit the History and Discovery Center our second day in Islamorada. We enjoyed walking through the center and watching the movies on the railroad and 1935 hurricane. more »
So much to learn. We spent more than 2 hrs here and could have stayed a few more. Allow yourself time and don't be in a rush to your next stop.
Worth a visit. The museum has good material (includes old films) to reflect Florida Keys interesting history. The short films on building the railway, 1935 hurricane and introduced plants were interesting and shown in a comfortable film theatre. However the films did not always run as they were supposed to.
