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.

This was a pretty cool little stop over but there really isn't much to see except a reconditioned US Coast Guard Ship. If you love ships, then you will find this very interesting.

This is a self guided tour of a battleship that was once in WWII and the Vietnam War. Lots of history and it gives you the feel that you were actually there during those times.

If you have kids that want to see a little piece of American history, then mosey on over to the Ingham brought down from Charleston where previously posted at the Yorktown. The local volunteer manning the location was nice, friendly and knowledgeable on the vessel and its history. Great for kids and adults.

This is a self guided tour and is very interesting for any history buffs out there. My father especially enjoyed it and spent a lot of time in there.

Really cool to see the lower decks of a ship that was in service from the mid 1930's until the mid 1980's. Good price.
