Fodor's Expert Review Dry Tortugas National Park and Historic Key West Bight Museum

Old Town Museum/Gallery
If you can't see Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas in person, this is the next best thing. Opened in 2013 by the national park's official ferry commissioner, this free attraction in Key West's Historic Seaport has an impressive (1:87) scale model of the fort; life-size figures, including one of the fort's most famous prisoner, Dr. Samuel Mudd; and a junior ranger station for the little ones with hands-on educational fun. The exhibits are housed in a historic site as well: the old Thompson Fish House, where local fishermen would bring their daily catch for processing.
