Big Changes at the Key West Aquarium

key west aquariumWe have had a lot changes going on at the Key West Aquarium. First we have a fabulous new Key West Aquarium website. You can also stay in touch with us on our Key West Aquarium Facebook page and on our Key West Aquarium Twitter page.

Inside the Aquarium we have had a makeover. Our Learning Cove is open and filled with lots of information and exhibits on the environment and some of the endangered animals in our waters. We have also repainted from head to toe, or in our case, nose to tail with a lot of help from our good friends from the United States Coast Group Key West. The crew of the USS Kodiak Island did an amazing job and we cannot thank them enough!
