A painting come to life… Sculpture of “La Danse a la Campagne” by Pierre-Auguste Renoir at the Key West Museum of Art at the Custom House on Front Street. 

Towering over Mallory’s historic seaport, the Custom House is as stunning a sight to visitors today as it was when it opened in 1891

Originally home to the island’s customs office, postal service, and district courts, this four-story architectural marvel was built to keep pace with the increasing population and wealth accumulating from Key West’s lucrative trade routes and maritime industries. 

Now a gorgeous musem, you need to take time from shopping on Duval Street to check out this local treasure. Guy Harvey’s Old Man and the Sea collection that lines the three level staircase is a delight to artists and readers alike. It is a series of drawings depicting the entire Hemingway book. 

A perfect place to escape the heat of the day.
