We stopped on our way to the airport--it's literally right next to it. Our daughter is very into the paranormal stuff and Robert the Doll. It was interesting and unique. Almost bought a Robert the Doll at the gift shop, but just couldn't do it...a tad creepy.

We (two couples traveling together) stopped to check out the fort/museum as we took one of the trolleys around Key West. We paid the admission fee and browsed through the entire property, which took less than an hour. There were a variety of displays, artifacts and information and it was interesting to be able to climb up into the tower... More

This is a museum as well as a historical fort. Quite a number of displays covers some of Key West History. More to my liking is the ability to visit some of the old fort rooms as well as climb a spiral staircase to the second and third floor of one of the towers. This was a very worthwhile stop... More

My husband and I read great reviews about this place and were excited to see what it was all about. I am sorry to say we were pretty disappointed for several reasons. First of all, it was ridiculously hot in the museum. Now, I get it, it's Key West in August, and it's hot. But how about turning on a... More

Great little museum. Very interesting old artifacts and of course ---Robert! I first saw this place on the "Ghost Tour, " and went back the next day to see more since it looked so interesting. It does not disappoint.

We are locals and decided to finally visit here with some family members from Georgia. There are lots of artifacts in here and no guided tour, so you can go at your own pace. There also discounts for students and locals which is nice.
