Crane Point Museum
As you approach the Crane Point Museum be sure to notice the beautiful handcrafted large bas-relief cooper doors with scenes of the Florida Keys' underwater sea life.
To pause the slideshow, place your cursor over photo.
Observe a 600 year-old dugout canoe, remnants of pirate ships and a simulated coral reef cave. Learn about the native Keys inhabitants, the early explorers, the pioneers and developers of the "Railroad that Died at Sea." See the Bellarmine jug (circa 1580), a shipwreck artifact that was found in 1980 in almost perfect condition in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida Keys. Be introduced to Key deer and other animals native to the Keys including turtles, snails, snakes and whales. Meet the moray eel in his aquarium, and view the orientation film of the Crane Point Museum and Nature Trails.

Relive the swashbuckling adventures of Keys Pirates in the Children's Activity Center, located on the deck outside the Orientation Theatre. Climb aboard a 17th century galleon, "Los Ninos de Los Cayos," an interactive vessel complete with pirate clothes and treasure!
