Re-exploring your town. - Key West revisited- June 2017 - The Custom House

I've lived in Key West over 23 year and it has changed a lot in those years.   A lot more people with traffic and busier life styles.  They had when I came here and they still have so many things for tourists to do and see.   They have lots of museums and a Friend, Margaret Gil, and I decided we would re -tour the museums in town.   In some cases it has been years and years (if ever) that we stepped foot in some of these.   I did a lot of touring of these museums when my son was still at home.   He was almost 9 when we moved here and with school events and scouting events, we managed to tour most of them.

Margaret and I decided we would go to The Custom House first.   They had a new exhibit about the Navy's presence in Key West.   We thought that sounded great.

Hope the pictures make you want to tour The Custom House too.   Don't want to post too many to spoil your visit.

In addition to the Navy exhibit - they have exhibits on Ernest Hemingway, the Civil War in the Keys and Mario Sanchez art to name a few.   A little taste of those exhibits.

Don't forget the sculptures as you enter and exit the Museum.  Really lovely.
