Overview

Bahamians were among the first settlers in the Keys and their influence remains strong, as seen in the city's Bahamian Village neighborhood. At this museum, you can learn more about the influence of Bahamians in Key West in a collection of photos, letters, vintage clothing and memorabilia outlining the Bahamian connection. Even the building has Bahamian ties: it was once the residence of Lofton B. Sands, part of a prominent Bahamian family, who built this home in the 1920s. Admission is $1 per person but additional donations are welcome.
