Curator Tour - Overseas to the Keys @ Custom House Museum | Key West | Florida | United States

On Wednesday, June 7 from 10-11am, Cori Convertito, Ph.D., will offer a special Curator-led tour of the newly renovated Key West Art & Historical Society Custom House Museum exhibit Overseas to the Keys – Henry Flagler’s Overseas Railway.  The tour is free, but museum admission rates apply (KWAHS members enjoy free museum admission).  Reservations (maximum 15 guests) are required.

The permanent exhibit celebrates an important part of Florida Keys history and the incredible engineering feat that joined mainland Florida to Key West, an overseas train they said couldn’t be done.

Overseas to the Keys – Henry Flagler’s Overseas Railway is a permanent exhibit and is generously supported by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust, Thomas Kenan, the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, and Lamont Harris.
