Museum of Art & History (Customs House)

Great museum for the traveling art exhibits (check site for current exhibit) and the always present Key West history in the upstairs gallery. Housed in the Custom House built in 1891 & used for salvaged cargo from wrecked ships, the gallery now contains works by folk artist, Maria Sanchez (detailed wood painting of life in Key West in the early 20th century - amazing) and a Hemingway room. Even without going inside it is fun to take pictures of all the lifesize figures created by Johnson on the porch and back lawn. During my recent visit the Johnson statues were on display inside on the ground floor as well. There were many famous paintings in life-size form where you could make yourself a part of the scene. Very cool!
