About Ernest Hemingway House And Museum, Key West

Not many know this but Nobel Prize laureate, Ernest Hemmingway spent around a decade in Key West and wrote about 70% of his books, many of them known to be his best works, in this beautifully built Spanish Colonial stone house. Hemingway is said to have lived in this house at Key West till his death; the house has been preserved in its original state. Unfortunately, not a lot of his personal belongings are on display here. A few letters written to him, some of his books and plenty of photographs to help visualize his everyday life are some of the exhibits showcased. Hemmingway was known to have an affinity for the feline clan and even today, you’ll see a lot of cats in the compound, including descendents of the six toed cats.

Ernest Hemingway House And Museum, Key West Reviews

  • Hemingway’s life was an amazing odyssey of heroics, prolific writing and sadness. This tour is done well and it is very informative. Be aware if your not a cat person there are over 50 cute cats. The cats are truly part of the history of the house and family. Touring the home really gave an interesting incite into a man who had many marriages and was notability a mans man but lived his life in a manner of purity to his craft. You see the Home as he lived there.

  • We came to visit the Hemingway House while in Key West for a few days. I don't know TOO much about Hemingway, but I was looking for some activities here that did not involve imbibing copious amounts of alcohol. We came fairly early in the day, bought tickets and waited for our tour to begin. I'm not much of a cat person, but hubby is and he loved the 50-60 of them that are on property. These kitties have six toes and are descendants of Hemingway's own pets. It's kind of funny to be in a historic house/museum and see the cats just climbing on anything they want. The interior of the house was nice, but nothing that really knocked my socks off. I liked the grounds better, they are very lush and tropical. If you are interested in learning more about Ernest Hemingway, this is your place!

  • Very interesting place for people who want to learn more about the writer Ernest Hemingway, everyone else can enter the area and pet some cats. The tickets are 14$ for adults, which is a little too much in my opinion, as you can't really spend more than ~45 minutes there. Although there is a tour that lasts about 20 minutes and shows you every detail of his life. The staff is very nice and knows lot of different things about the whole place. Very clean surroundings with a small souvenir shop. Definetly something you should have seen at least once. Most of the cats there like to be pet and enjoy some gentle strokes.

  • Awesome tour of the house today. Neither myself, nor my wife, actually really knew anything about Hemingway but Chris was an awesome tour guide and now we know quite a bit about him! I would definitely recommend Chris to anybody touring the house! The property is beautiful and you can never go wrong with any property that is covered in cats that you can pet. I wish I had had more time to hang out and pet the cats.

  • I have often visited this site and find the tours refreshing and compelling. The research and knowledge of the docents is outstanding and even after having read a dozen biographies of Hemingway I learn something new each time. There is a feeling of having been a guest in the home rather than having walked about a lifeless site. The gift shop is special. You will sigh when you see his study and on one visit I watched a young girl place a rose outside that room. That was very special. The grounds, cats, and upkeep are very well kept and the entrance fees are very reasonable as they are used for the sites preservation.
