I walked up and down Duval and asked quite a few people where this place was. It was nowhere to be found. I checked both sides of the street and walked for a couple of blocks. It doesn't appear to be here any more. Only one person I talked to recognized it, but she was not sure about the name.... More

We enjoyed the film shown in the basement and also the one shown on the main floor. Our guide was in period dress and he gladly answered all our many questions after giving us his talk. There we much to see and marvel at. Then climb the 65' tower and look out over key west, see the cruise ships at... More

Don't miss this stop !! We learned so much here. Very educational. Lots of history in these walls. A great view from the tower if you care to climb up there. The staff was really great!!

My fiancé and I spent a day touring the shops and museums and we came upon this museum. Before entering the museum, we were greeted by an actor playing the 'owner' of the wrecking auction. He led us into the museum and gave us a rich lesson about the history of wrecking and Key West. After he had explained the... More

Next time you're in MALLORY SQUARE and have an hour+ to kill, or just need a great view for some pix, pop into the museum and get a great idea what made the KEYS rich!! Lots of interesting stuff to see, and watch, and see how WRECKING actually made this country into what it is today .. .. Without them,... More

Great way to learn about a little-known industry that made the Florida Keys what they are today. You can choose to go into the museum alone, or have a guided tour from an actor playing the role of a relevant historical character. The actors were great and played their roles well. The museum had a lot to offer and had... More

A little expensive, but not bad if you bundle it in with a couple of attractions in Key West. The tour guides are part of the fun, as they dress and act like they really were back in the day. This helps immerse you in history, and makes learning fun

Went here with my 13 year old son, he thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm so glad we decided to check it out. If you do the Trolley tours do a package deal and save some $$

This is a show of sorts. If you are not prepared to be held captive for the show for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, skip it. I know the "actor" was giving information about how the wrecker business was important to Key West, but I felt my eyes glazing over at one point. Kids might especially find this boring, which...
