I really enjoyed visiting this museum. There is a variety of cool stuff to see from yesteryear. There is one room that contains metal artwork by folk artist Stanley Papio, aka Barefot Stanley, a longtime colorful Keys resident who created awesome sculptures from "junk." And,...More

Three spots is probably an optimistic rating for this museum. The high point, and focal point, of the place is Robert the Doll. If you're into the paranormal and want a good tingly feeling, go see Robert the Doll. As far as this being a...More

Loved the museum's charm and all of the items that they have on display. There are lots of things to see here and the attendant there was wonderful. This is a great stop if you have a couple of hours to spend.

This was on our 'must-see' list, and we were not disappointed! The structure itself is incredible, and the displays were informative and interesting. Well worth the admission!

I loved visiting this little museum. The entry fee was $10 per person and it was well spent. The main attraction seems to be Robert the Doll, but there are many other historical exhibits and art on display! It’s definitely a great place to take...More

I assume they would be open during Fantasy Fest...all the attractions are open as I remember. Fantasy Fest is a great adult experience.
