This is a terrific experience! We took our three children & everyone loved this. It is a self guided, walk through tour. Lots to see & explore. The ship is beautiful & has been preserved just as the last crew left it when they disembarked. Don't miss out on a wonderful opportunity!

We came across this ship while driving around the Keys. We have a little boy who loves anything military, and found this to be such a cool adventure! Definitely not a place to take little ones under 2yrs, but we managed with our trio. The tour was self-guided, with arrows pointing the way, and a guide map to lead you along. There were recording in some sections to give you a feel of what it must have felt like to be on that ship when it was in working order.
I highly recommend you paying this ship a visit!

I forgot to mention...there are no elevators, or wheelchair access...from what I saw. There are very narrow steps which made it difficult with 3 small children. There were vending machines at one end with chips and soda/water. It was pretty hot, but if you keep walking it's not a burden.

Please enjoy. It was a pleasant experience!

Found this absolutely amazing museum by accident and it was the best part of our trip. We were amazed! I've been going to Key West for 15 years and never knew about this ship. Take the tour. The tour operators were super knowledgeable and kind. We arrived at the very ending of their hours and they still let us go through, take our time, and gave us soooo much information.

Ingham became the oldest active duty and most decorated Navel vessel serving the United States. Then in 1988 she became decommissioned and is used for a museum.

Knowledgable staff, a piece of history. This ship was 50+ years in service and finaly decommisioned in the late 80's. The boat is cared for by volunteers with love
