While traveling with husband and a friend I bought a pkg. for places to see & on/off bus. You don't need to pay for Flagler Station. You don't need to pay for Southern Most Point. If you walk, bike or drive around you can see it all. We have interest in railways so we wanted to see what the station... More

Smallest museum I've ever seen but the information is packed in there. If you're already in the area on Caroline St, it's worth a stop in there if you like key west history and railroads.

As a train buff and having studied the Florida East Coast Railway I was looking forward to this. When we got there there was no one manning the museum. We strolled through, but pictures and exhibits are falling apart. Very disappointing - it looked as though it had been closed/deserted.

This museum is free, so we were not expecting a huge amount. What little there is on display at this museum is very interesting but it just seems rather sad that it is confined to two small buildings. This railroad and the story behind it is fascinating and a major part of Key West History. I guess the public are... More

This museum is two small buildings that have several pictures and a few displays. There was a television in the corner that was supposed to play a video about Flagler Station and Mr. Flagler but it wouldn't work. There was no one onsite to check the video player or to tell you any information about the museum. There's nothing wrong... More

If you don't know about the Overseas Railroad, Henry Flagler, his "influence" on Key West and all of the Keys development or are interested in artifacts from the train, this is a good attraction. The tickets come with the conch train/trolley tickets and it's worth an hour or so to stop by, watch a short video and check out the... More

This museum occupies a converted boxcar and an old building that formerly stood beside the track. Inside are a number of exhibits related to the history of Flagler's amazing Florida East Coast Railway that formerly linked the cities of Miami and Key West. Videos show old footage of the line and give a comprehensive insight into its history. Despite the... More

We really enjoyed the railroad museum. There were two one room buildings. The first building housed information on the people that lived in the house. The second building was a railroad car that had information about how the railroad was built, who Henry Flagler was, and what the train ride was like. It was very informative. The train building did... More
