The Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center is Key West's premiere natural history museum, showcasing exhibits documenting the native flora and fauna of the South Florida region. The 6,000-square-foot center offers free admission Tuesdays through Saturdays during normal business hours, with the exception of major national holidays. Interactive exhibits include a replica of Atlantis, the only underwater ocean laboratory in the world, as well as a 2,500-gallon reef tank and reef cam at the Mote Marine Laboratory Living Reef exhibit. A short documentary film, "Reflections of the Florida Keys," is showcased at the Center periodically throughout the day. Other exhibits detail the Keys' ecology, including reconstructions of pineland, hardwood hammock, beach dune, mangrove shoreline, and seagrass flats ecosystems.
