NileGuide Expert tip:
One of the most romantic spots for a waterside wedding, it is little known and unmatched for the natural beauty inside.
- One of the most important historical and archaeological sites in the Keys, Crane Point, located at mile marker 50.5 bayside, incorporates 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.
The Museum of Natural History is filled with information on the land forms of the region, the environment and how all its parts are interconnected, and the part that mankind has played, both positive and negative, on the fragile ecosystem of the Keys. A shell exhibit is intriguing, and there are dioramas explaining how it all works together. This museum and the Florida Keys Children's Museum are part of a dual attraction called The Museums of Crane Point. Admission fee is minimal and acts as donation to Crane Point.
Marathon Wild Bird Center is located inside, among the hammocks, along with six miles of nature hike trails and shoreline views.
