The Flagler Station Oversea Railway Historeum is a small museum located near Mallory Square at the corner of Caroline St. and Margaret St. The Oversea Railway was quite significant in the history of Key West and the Florida Keys. It is a brightly colored building....More

The Flagler Station Oversea Railway Historeum was the end of the line when the railroad built by Henry M. Flagler completed the Florida East Coast Railway line to the southernmost city - Key West in 1912. If you are a train buff, you'll enjoy the...More

Agree with the previous reviewer that this "museum" is hard to find. Most people would enter through the main entrance of the yellow building, since it's labeled "Flagler Station". Nope. That's the entrance to the Cuban art gallery. I'm sure by now the owner of...More

We had visited this musum several times before and it was free. On this visit, the entrance had changed as the store you usually enter through was no longer there (It was a Cuban art gallery.) We entered from the side of the store and...More

Small building where Flagler had a Railway Station. Two videos playing and numerous pictures with history. Free, 15 minutes to view.

We just happened to stumble upon this museum because it is next to a trolley ticket booth. It was unmanned, so nobody was there to collect the $3 admission fee. There really wasn't much to look at. No need to put this on your list...More

We wanted to see this museum but evidently the streets are under construction so the place is closed. Evidently construction moves slowly so make sure it is open (they answer the phone) before trekking out there.

I was looking forward to learning more about the Overseas Railway so was disappointed to discover the museum has closed with the building up for lease. All that is left is a small room with a short video. The surrounding area and pier at least...More

Simple video and museum on the history of the RR being built to Key West. This was included in our trolly tickets. I don't think we would have paid to see it. However, for being free, it was well worth the stop.

I knew nothing of Henry Flagler before I came to Key West, but I was told of the Overseas Railway by a friend, so thought that the Historeum would be interesting, which it was. To be honest, the exhibits are a little tired; photographs in...More
