Key West has some truly fascinating museums to visit– we’ve lived here for years and we still haven’t seen them all! Which is why we’re so excited that this weekend South Florida’s National Public Radio affiliate, WLRN, and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council have come together to offer free or discounted admission to several local museums and sites. This is a great way to explore some of the best that Key West has to offer with as little impact to the wallet as possible. Most of the participating venues are kid-friendly and fun for the whole family, so pack a snack and get out there!
For three days only, residents and visitors can simply log onto www.wlrn.org and select the “Florida Keys and Key West Museum and Attractions Weekend” link, where they will be prompted to print out their voucher. Hurry– there’s a lot to see in just three days!
Participating venues here in Key West include the following: Key West Aquarium, Key West Shipwreck Treasures Museum, Harry S. Truman Little White House, Key West Art Center, Key West Garden Club at West Martello, Key West’s Oldest House Museum, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Key West Museum of Art and History at the Custom House, Key West Lighthouse & Keeper’s Quarters, Fort East Martello Museum.
