“Art and History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

A very enjoyable combination of art and history. I especially liked the information on Hemingway...quite a few nice items I had not previously seen. Flagler's railroad and the USS Maine are nicely represented as well.

“Nice exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Interesting museum. Good for a rainy day excursion. Not quite big city, but charming for a small town.

“Key West History in a Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Spent a few hours here during our last Key West visit. The building is a beautiful piece of architecture. The wrap around verandah features life-size, realistic looking statues. Inside there are excellent exhibits featuring Key West history including Hemingway, Sanchez, hurricanes and the Spanish War.

Many resorts offer free admission tickets or have buy one - get one coupons. Standard admission is $7 for adults, cheaper for seniors, adults and AAA card holders. Well worth the price of admission.

“One of the better museums in KW”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This was a really nice, little museum! I'm glad we went. There were some interesting exhibits downstairs, and upstairs had a lot of KW history. Definitely a nice place to visit and escape the heat! Worth the price of admission for sure.

“would love to see more history displays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The restoration of this building is awesome and the displays give you a good overall view of the town...but the title is not misleading...
