There is nothing better than free, right? Well, August 24-26, 2012 you can enjoy a whole bunch of local museums for one low price of zero. Yes, that means they are all FREE. This event was so popular last year that the nice folks at WLRN Public Radio and the Monroe County Tourist Development Council have decided to do it again.
This three day long event provides a free cultural pass for South Florida residents and visitors to experience the rich history of Key West by offering free admission to eleven participating museums.
This is really a good deal. While the Hemingway House is not on the list this year, there are plenty of other great attractions, including some in the middle and upper Keys. Plan your weekend around these great freebies:
- History of Diving Museum, at 82990 Overseas Highway, in Islamorada.
- Crane Point Museum & Nature Center, at 5550 Overseas Highway, in Marathon
