Museum of Natural History - Provides the visitors with interesting and educational interpretative displays of local wildlife, marine-life, dioramas and dramatic exhibits featuring artifacts and objects of cultural interest.
Gift Shop - Our gift shop offers a wide selection of items. Spark a child's imagination with great books, puzzles, and unusual toys. Treat yourself, family or friends to a special gift that might included homemade soaps, and lotions, unique jewelry, or a delightful perfume. Assorted tropical themed gifts, decorations, specialty foods, and a large collection of enjoyable and educational materials can all be found in our beautiful gift shop.
Nature Trails - Explore the many trails that exist on the 63-acre property and enjoy the natural Florida Keys hardwood hammock. The Trails include a visit to the Hammock Loop, here you'll learn to identify the hammock trees. Also, Creature Feature is a changing exhibit featuring hermit crabs, lizards, snakes, and insects. You can also observe a real beehive on the deck. The Butterfly Garden is a joy to see and many fragrant flowers are in this meadow. Next, the Adderley House, the oldest house outside of Key West. Continue to the end of the nature trail by seeing the Crane House. Francis and Mary Crane, for whom Crane Point is named, lived in this house in 1954. And, the last place you'll find is The Point, a beautiful view of Florida Bay. The complete trail is 1.5 miles. For those people that do not want to walk, we have a trolley which will take you on the tour, free of charge, with a volunteer who is well educated about the Crane Point Hammock.
Marathon Wild Bird Center - Stop and see Florida Keys and migrating wild birds at this rescue center for injured or sick wild birds. This facility has rescued, rehabilitated, and released close to 6,000 injured wild birds since it was founded in 1998.
Eco-Canopy Tour - The Board of Directors and staff of Crane Point have been pursuing the development of an eco-canopy tour . . .
