The Florida Keys have historically been an alluring travel destination for travelers around the world. With the onset of the Great Depression in the 1930s, tourism in Key West was the lynchpin in warding off bankruptcy. This exhibit will explore the history of tourism in the Florida Keys from the 1920s until the 1980s while focusing specifically on transportation, accommodation, travel brochures and postcards. Exhibit runs through September.

Custom House Museum is located at 281 Front Street, and open daily 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
