Crane Point Museum

As you enter Crane Point Museum, take a minute to notice the exquisitely handcrafted large bas-relief copper doors with scenes of the Florida Keys sea life.

Inside the Museum, see 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 near-perfect condition in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida Keys. See Key Deer and other animals native to the Florida Keys including turtles, snails, snakes and whales.
