Hidden History of the Dry Tortugas

Dr. April Watson
Archaeologist
National Park Service


Our mission is to give children an opportunity to explore the natural sciences with hands-on activities that are designed to spark a child's curiosity. They will learn systematic approaches to using scientific methods that include the use of real fossils, artifacts, and replicas.

Fort Jefferson is one of the most extensive and ambitious permanent coastal fortifications ever constructed by the United States Army during the 19th Century and many details of its construction and military history are well documented. Many other aspects of the history of this place are still being researched and documented, including the diverse human experiences that span centuries.

The Museum's Jurassic Camp program offers hands-on activities, discovery of prehistory, and a focus on Florida. Campers will become junior paleontologists and archaeologists, learning to identify fossils, Native American artifacts, and more. We include STEAM-based multidisciplinary learning and small group settings for more individual attention and stronger social bonds along with arts and crafts, games, and music and movement (dance, yoga).
