Key West being a seaside town, a lot of its history is naval bound. For instance, different ships that docked, brought with them elements that influenced the shape of the city be it cultural or architectural. The Shipwreck Museum is a one-stop shop for everything you need about shipwrecks. Stacked to the ceiling with artifacts retrieved from the Isaac Allerton shipwreck, there’s also a real life shipwrecker there who would be more than happy to entertain any queries you might about shipwrecks and the likes. The Shipwreck Museum in addition to everything else, is known for its 65 foot high tower, reconstructed to give you a feel of how it was during the shipwreck salvages/rescue days.

Cool little museum, the best part is the watch tower you can climb and see most of key west. If you enjoy history and anything naval related you will enjoy the artifacts they have inside. It's one of the cheaper things to do in key west, its very affordable for a family, and it's located right off Mallory square, easy to walk to. For the price it was a nice couple hours and a chance to get out of the heat, and see some amazing views.
We got here 1 hour before closing. I was really excited to see the museum. Upon entering the museum there is a video to watch about the museum. We watched nearly all of it and went upstairs. I wish I could say this museum was fun... I thought there would be more shipwreck stuff... We went though in 30 min. To me the entry price it wasn't worth it. But if you happen to be in key West might as well check it out....
GOOD BREAK FROM THE SUN My friends and I needed a break from the sun so we got tickets here. Totally worth the money. The gentleman dressed up on the second floor (just above where you watch the entrance movie) was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk to. He answered all of our questions and was interesting. Lots of cool little trinkets and pieces of history. Definitely will recommend to any friends who plan on going to Key West.
A must see in Key West!!! Fun for adults and families. Ask for Lauren as your guide. Lots of fun.
Boring, boring and disappointing! There were no actors that day because they said it was too hot and they didn't want anyone to wait too long! What? No one was there when we went through. Do not take any kids. My 7 year old did not want to watch a documentary movie for 14 minutes alone as we sat on a stool. No one there to tell us anything. He wanted to play on his tablet. After 10 minutes an informative person(the only person working there) must have seen how bored and confused we were and told us a little about an exhibit. Still boring. Then to make things worse, my son did not even want to climb to the top of the tower at end because he said it was too high. I was kind of relieved because I just wanted to leave. I couldn't take it anymore. A total waste of my money and time!
