Virtual Programs

We are doing our part at the Keys History & Discovery Center to encourage social distancing and combat COVID-19, most significantly, by temporarily closing our museum. So, until we are able to reopen, we will be bringing the museum to you in numerous new virtual formats!  

And if you miss any of our live events listed below, you can always access the Discovery Center’s ever-expanding digital media offerings on our YouTube Channel.

Mondays at 1 p.m.
