This is a great stop while in Key West. The boat was labeled and the self guided walking tour was fantastic. It truly was preserved exactly as the soldiers left it- really informative, historical and mostly, interesting.

Very impressive ship/museum. My wife, our 9yr old son and I visited the Ingham and it is worth the money to see such a piece of US war and civil history. My son was blown away and impressed about the dimension of the ship even this one is not extremely big but still impressive.

We just happened to find this on our way to see the fort in the area. It was an awesome, unexpected experience. My boyfriend loves history...this was just his thing. He and his nine year old were so excited to take this tour. We all enjoyed it. It was self guided which we really liked... we could linger here or... More

It is very important to know and understand our history, to have respect, value, and appreciate the sacrifices of others for us to have the life we do as opposed to other countries. This tour is self-guided and lets you go back in time for a glance of the U.S. Coast Guard--an area not often regarded as military by the... More

As a Coast Guard active in Canada, I gotta say that I was really impressed by the whole story behind this ship. You could feel that this ship's been through a lot. Great Experience, I really recommend this to all maritime fans.

Very interesting and I highly recommend visiting the Ingham. The volunteer docents are professional and have real love for this vessel.

This ship is fun to tour. You get a little "talk" at the beginning and then you are on your own. You wind your way around following the arrows.

Don't miss the chance to meet the fine gentlemen volunteers at the ship and take the self guided tour. History and stories abound. Go early as it can get hot

Looking for things I hadn't done yet in Key West, I happened upon the Ingham and was glad I did. For a small admission charge you get to go through the entire ship which has been left in the condition it was in when it was decommissioned in 1988. You see the quarters where the sailors lived, ate, and played.... More

Went here for my birthday. It was great. Self guided tour with audio recordings throughout the ship and a video. Lots of interesting history of the cutter itself as well as other similar cutters. Definitely worth an hour or two of your time.
