- Crane Point is one of the most important archeological and historical sites in the Florida Keys, dating back to some of the islands' earliest settlers. Its 63 acres incorporate the Museum of Natural History of the Florida Keys, the Florida Keys Children's Museum, nature trails, a wild bird rehabilitation center, rainforest, butterfly garden and flight habitat.
Kids are touchy-feely creatures, and at the Children's Museum they can get a nose-to-nose look at iguanas, fish and other creatures that call the Keys home. One part of a two-part museum complex called The Museums of Crane Point, this facility keeps kids captivated while they learn.
The dress-up-like-a-pirate opportunity here is popular, too. Outside, there is a mile-long loop trail, and kids are likely to enjoy a prowl around the remains of a Bahamian village and a look at the restored George Adderly House. Walking shoes and mosquito repellant are highly recommended. Admission fee is minimal, considered a donation to help the Crane Point preservation foundation.
