“Something ENJOYABLE and FREE in Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is a wonderful hidden gem. Even locals don't know about it!
It's INSIDE the Clinton Square Market Mall on the top floor.

NICE volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Live birds do a meet-n-greet inside the door. We had a lot of fun holding and petting a Macaw, a Cockatoo & Cockatiels at the entrance. Movies are FREE and interesting. "The Jungle Walk" has a few live animals and animatronic animals. Also a 22+ foot stuffed Anaconda that ate a woman in Brazil. There is a chilling voice recording of her husband describing the event.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at A Key Encounter.

“Religious Scam”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Nuff said --- any place that has to trick you to their religious propaganda should not be trusted. Again if they were HONEST about their evangelical intent fine, but they are not. Of course the Chic-Fil-A cruise ship crowd may love it.

“Nice Free Attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A nice little free attraction. They have a few birds out front to take pictures with (a Scarlet Macaw, a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Moluccan Cockatoo) as well as some inside you can hold. They have two shows, one is a planetarium show including several pictures from Hubble and the other is a nature show with a lot of underwater footage. It is worth a stop in.

“Just a beautiful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The LARGE SCREEN Key movie is the best to watch. They are always very nice and welcoming when you arrive and will even play the movie if you are the only one. My kids love to watch the movie. They show you many of the wildlife of the FL Keys.

“Nice spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Nice spot for a quick visit. Tropical birds available to take pictures. Very interesting and educational film about the flora and fauna of the keys. Also a planetarium show, which we did not have time to view.
