I was thoroughly creeped out by Robert the doll... I almost ran through the display room to get out.

Going with a combo ticket to save money the fort was one of the attractions. Lucky for us as it was one of the best and interesting stops we would never have gone to. We did not know of it as it is up at northern tip of Key West on Ocean side. The story of Robert the Doll( we... More

Took the Ghost tour, which included a stop over at the Fort, which was pretty hockey. Robert the doll was the center of attraction. I was not impressed. Some old tomb stones displayed were very interesting.

This old Civil War fort has been the home to many of Key West's most interesting and creepy historic stories! Learn about Robert the Doll and Count Von Cosel at this wartime relic! Go to the top of the staircase for an amazing view!!

We went there to see Robert the doll but decided to also see the fort. We had a cell app so we could try and locate ghost. My fiancé told me the red lights we're going off the chart in the cubby on the winding stair case where it is cold there. He then received the word evil. That was... More

Well, this place was great - if you love history! Also, Robert the Doll lives here! (I had never heard of Robert before this trip). Fascinating stories heard here. No A/C, so if you can't stand the heat - stay away.

A true classic haunted location. Robert the doll is here, with several other spirits also. HE IS A MUST SEE. If you are sensitive, you will feel his presence, and perhaps other spirits on the grounds. If you want to see him up close, look on my facebook page.
