Stumbled across this on one of our many walks down Duval street. Its a free stop and the grounds are amazing. Home is so old and interesting. Great to see!

“Great free museum”

Very nice place to look around. It was free and we left a small donation. Full of interesting history. The historian was very friendly.

“Odd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a show of sorts. If you are not prepared to be held captive for the show for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, skip it. I know the "actor" was giving information about how the wrecker business was important to Key West, but I felt my eyes glazing over at one point. Kids might especially find this boring, which is too bad because the setting is fascinating, lots of found treasure.

“Historical”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Finally stopped in here after all the years of visiting. We were not disappointed the history is interesting and for a small donation could not complain.
