“More history with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This museum has good history, stories and interesting artwork. You can get some great pics from within the fort and even better from atop of the fort if you like ocean views. If you're lucky you might get a good vid of a plane taking off or landing from the top of the fort.

“Worth Your Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Very interesting and informative if you are into history as I am. Lot's of great artifacts depicting civil war military life as well as the life of citizens of Key West in the 1800's. Great view from the roof top over looking the Atlantic Ocean and the price was very reasonable. The fort is NOT air conditioned and the spiral staircase leading to the second floor and rooftop is quite warm, but that's the only drawback. I'd highly recommend anyone visiting Key West to check it out for themselves.

“Check it out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

My husband and I went for a visit and really liked the place. It has Robert the doll there (who is supposed to be haunted). Great view of the water and there were some interesting artifacts as well as a couple art galleries on site. The would be great place for a Halloween party!
