I remember we sometimes had turtle soup on the menu at home. That was in the sixties. The soup might have come from the soup pot displayed in this very place, a wooden shed built on the kraals, which is now the museum.
After an interesting introduction by Rick, the conservator, who knows everything about Key West’s turtle history, we spent about 30 minutes watching objects, photos and videos and reading displays. There is an exhibition of objects found in the kraals, such as glass marbles, parts of turtle skeletons…
The entrance is free, but donations are appreciated. Thanks to Rick, we managed to see one of the few green turtles living around the island. One of the highlights of our KW visit!
