Educational Programs

The Key West Aquarium is dedicated to educating our guests about the amazing marine life of the Florida Keys, as well as our history and relationship with it.

Daily Educational Opportunities

Guests can attend guided presentations throughout the day to learn about specific topics, including sea turtles, sharks and rays, invasive species, and mangrove ecosystems. Digital presentations can be viewed for exhibits in the main gallery that give information about the animals as well as the habitats they live in or a specific topic area, such as coral restoration or the history of the Dry Tortugas.
