Key Biscayne Historical & Heritage Society Museum with
Dr. Paul George | 2020
A delightful video of the new “Pop-Up” museum which was set to open on March 12, 2020 at 88 W. McIntyre, Suite 200, Key Biscayne. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the museum was not able to open. The KB Historical Society was lucky enough to have Dr. Paul George tour the museum and give us the rich history of Key Biscayne, the Rickenbacker Causeway & Crandon Park.
If you would like to donate to the KB Historical & Heritage Society, please visit our website: kbhistory.org or call 305-361-2770.
Thank you for watching!
