Where else can you experience history and a haunted experience all in one. But, listen for the residual energy of a soldier whistling... this was weird one us. We were the only visitor's???

A must see if your are into Key West history and lore. The original Robert the doll resides here. The tour is self guided and interesting, well worth the price of admission.

I always visit East Martello Towers. Great history. Remember to ask Robert The Doll before taking his picture. Gift shop is a little pricey but if you are careful, you can find a couple of things to take home.

This is different from your typical museum because many of the items on display are out in the open and you walk among them. I could have spent more time here as there is quite a bit to see and read. I agree with other reviews advising to do a bit of research before you come to East Martello. It will make your visit more meaningful. I enjoyed the local art of Mario Sanchez and you can find more of his art at the Customs House Museum(KW Art and Historical Society)
