The museum is small, but I found the price reasonable, and I learned a lot. The reason for 5 stars, though, was Kim! She was so great with our young children. Not only did she explain concepts in simple ways so that they could understand, but she actually pointed out and invented a couple of little activities for them to do. They especially loved turning the wheel to pretend to pump air to the diver’s mask.

What a perfect place to visit in Key West. The in house tour guide was phenomenal. We wish we would have had her for the whole tour. We were a group of 13 and we all walked to the top of the lookout. We all wore our stickers proudly. Thank you.

Rick was THE BEST tour guide at the museum (aka Asa and very knowledgable). The museum was fun overall and there's an overlook spot up a flight of stairs so you can see a beautiful view of Key West. Rick made the whole experience worth wild and we appreciate it! Thank you so much!!

I have been to the island at least 10 times in the past 2 years, and have gotten numerous pictures and videos of haunting and apparitions at the Shipwreck Museum. The Ghosts and Gravestones Tour is wonderful. I suggest a good camera and taking LOTS of pictures, and then going through them a couple of days later.

Affordable tour. Interesting film to start and lots of old relics and information about the ship wreck history in Key West. The tower really is worth the steps to see the 360° view of KW. Don’t miss the candy bar wreck story at the end.

The museum provides some nice information on the history of Key West. Upon entering there is a nice video about 10 minutes long providing some good detail on shipwrecks and the like. On the second floor there are all kinds of artifacts and replicas that provides some additional history. There is a live person in period dress who gives more information and will answer additional questions. Then, climb the look out tower for a wonderful panoramic view of the city.Well worth a short visit.

Shipwreck museum was interesting and a great way to enjoy a/c on a humid afternoon. Observation deck offers a spectacular view of Key West. Highly recommend.

There were no pirates, but they had a fun cast and lots of history. The place looked really neat and a watch tower to look out at the sea.I highly recommend.
