A Great Experience
Sep 2013 • Family
I love A Key Encounter. I discovered it quite by accident over 10 years ago. The 2 films are lovely and very interesting. The wildlife walk is short, but beautiful and worthwhile. I can't believe RJP3 said this place is a scam. Not at all. It is a delightful, free attraction to all who wish to enjoy it. It is true that it is run by fine religious people who will share their message with you if invited to do so. Notice I said "if invited". There is no pressure at all. RJP3 is far too sensitive and easily offended, I think. He should be thanking them for a lovely free attraction and go back to enjoy it again; but this time with open heart and mind. Sadly, I hear they may be closing. I truly hope not. I've enjoyed dozens of visits over many years

Something ENJOYABLE and FREE in Key West!
Mar 2013 • Couples
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
Jan 2013 • Couples
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
Dec 2012 • Business
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
Aug 2012 • Couples
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
Oct 2012 • Friends
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.

A Piece of Heaven
Nov 2011 • Family
I have been to the Key Encounter a couple times. It is truly the best thing in the Florida Keys. The presentation is wonderful. The birds are great and the white bird in the lobby can't get enough love. If you planning a trip to the Keys put this on your top of your list.

Great photography
Feb 2012 • Friends
The Key West Encounter was informative and uplifting. The planetarium was also interesting. All for free and provided by a religious organization so of course the attraction has a Christian message.

Relaxing and insightful a pleasant change from the obvious decadence of much of the island

More like a Jesus Encounter
Sham intended to get people to view their evangelical nonsense: ridiculous that they can pretend to be a nature center!

Beautiful photography with a message: this exhibit is free and well worth a visit.
This is a peaceful place to visit in busy Key West. The three screen presentation is beautiful and speaks gracefully of creation of various creatures. The volunteers are fun and friendly, the parrots are beautiful, and the handouts are thoughtful and uplifting.
