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.

Key Wests Shipwreck Museum Reviews & Ratings
Was interesting place with lots of things to see concerning the sea and the area. They are in a busy touristy area with gift shops,restaurants and such. Tour buses, "trains" are plentiful to give tours. They also have cruise ship docks close by.
Excellent interpretive guides. Interesting info on the ship wrecking industry. Includes a climb up a tower with great views of the water, cruise ship, etc.
Lots of history and artifacts. Kinda small but full of information! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable!
Toured this place on our own and during a ghost tour. We were the only ones in the building while on the ghost tour and heard someone or something trying to move what seemed to be a huge, heavy chest of some sort on the second floor...but yet no one else was on that floor. Then we heard heavy foot steps, almost like a peg leg. We went back the next day to tour and check it out.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable but it’s a tourist trap for sure. Super small for the price we paid. We were in and out in like 15 minutes. The tower climb was fun but not worth the price we paid.
