Florida Keys History and Discovery Foundation formed in 2013 to develop and operate Keys History & Discovery Center. The Discovery Center, on the property of the Islander Resort, is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. (Note: Due to pandemic-related staffing limitations, we are reducing our hours of operation to Wednesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  This change is expected to be in effect through at least the end of August.)

The Discovery Center’s first floor focuses on a series of permanent exhibits exploring the vast history associated with the Upper Keys and includes: Legends of the Line, First People, Spanish Treasure Fleets, Pirates/Wreckers/Salvagers, Indian Key, Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railway, Stories of the Upper Keys and 1935 Labor Day Hurricane. The second floor of the museum operates as a rotating exhibit space and is also where you’ll find the Jerry Wilkinson Research Library and a state-of-the-art 35-seat movie theater featuring documentaries on Henry Flagler’s Over-Sea Railway, the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane and more!
