“Don't Miss This! A Key West Jewel!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We were riding our bikes around the island and stumbled on this fabulous museum. We learned so much about many events,people and history of Key West. Not your average museum. It's an amazing building too. There are alot of cool forts around, and this houses and interesting interior with the museum offerings. Kind of off the beaten path. Rent a bike and ride out there!

“Interesting history”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Past by this museum while biking down A1A along water. Interesting building and history. Didn't get to go inside so can't speak to what's inside.

“OK For Historical View”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

A self-guided tour of a civil war era fort with other exhibits inside including "Robert" the doll highlighted on the ghost tour. A good way to spend an extra hour on the island.

“Went at night on a tour...alone!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

My husband and I went on the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour which took us to the Martello...at night, by ourselves. We had such a spooky great time. It was cool to finally meet Robert after hearing so much about him. We took tons of pics of "orbs" in the main yard. It is very well kept up and the displays are pretty cool. Be prepared to be a little creeped out and leave the little ones at home if you go at night
