Explore Our Collection

With a collecting history that extends back to 1949, the Key West Art & Historical Society has unrivaled collections of contemporary and historic art and artifacts.  Its collections, which number more than 35,000 works in all media, range from historical to present-day and span the entire Florida Keys.

Many objects in the collection may be accessed through the Online Collections Catalogue.  The Key West Art & Historical Society is committed to expanding online access to our collections.  We invite patrons to frequently explore our evolving online collections catalogue as we continue adding new material. Objects will be added to the Online Catalogue as cataloguing is completed and images become available.

To contact the Curatorial staff for donation offers, image use requests, or research appointments, please use our online contact form or email the Curator.  Please contact the Curator’s office with any inquiries or comments about your Online Database experience.
