As a part of the Keys History & Discovery Center’s ongoing efforts to provide access to the museum during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made available online the content contained in our permanent exhibit monitors. Each week will feature the content from a different museum exhibit kiosk, which is accessible at  

The first week’s content will focus on Legends of the Line, which details the history of fishing in the Upper Keys, from 1915 through the 1960s.

Following weeks will include:

Week of May 25- Stories of the Upper Keys: Communities of Key Largo

Week of June 1- Stories of the Upper Keys: Plantation Key through Long Key

Week of June 8- Stories of the Upper Keys: The Hurricane Edition

The online access is another method by which the Discovery Center staff is providing online access to the museum and offering lessons specific to Upper Keys history and ecology, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other virtual programming includes:

  • Aquarium Biologist Blake Terry goes live on Facebook, Mondays at 1 p.m., looking at Coral Reef Exploration exhibit in partnership with Mote Marine Laboratory.
  • Museum Virtual Visits occur live on Facebook on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m., with Discovery Center Curator Brad Bertelli who provides a specific lesson from the museum’s permanent exhibits.
