Dry Tortugas National Park and Historic Key West Bight Museum

The Museum is a free attraction located in Key West’s Historic Seaport, known as the “Bight.” Exhibits include an 11-foot diameter scale model of Fort Jefferson, an interactive photo mural that explores the history of the Bight and a Junior Ranger Exploration Station that allows children to get hands-on with and learn about the natural resources of the Dry Tortugas.

The exhibits are housed inside the old Thompson Fish House (itself on the National Register of Historic Places) where the daily catch of the local fishing fleet was once processed.

By touring the Museum the Key West visitor will learn about one of our nation’s most unusual National Parks and Key West’s unique nautical heritage, whether they decide to visit the Park or not.
