What To Expect

Key West Shipwreck Museum
Your shipwreck voyage begins in 1856, the year the Isaac Allerton sank. On your visit to the Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum, view artifacts from this ship, one of the richest shipwrecks in Key West history. Spend hours exploring the remnants of old ships and learning about the fascinating salvage industry through artifacts and interactive exhibits.

Learn about how shipwrecks became a profession that made Key West one of the richest cities in America. See what it was like to work in the dangerous shipwreck scavenge industry back in the mid-19th century, as well what sorts of rewards were reaped. Sift through artifacts and watch informative video presentations as you dive deeper into this fascinating world. Watch actual underwater footage of a shipwreck. And summon all your strength to lift a silver bar salvaged from a Spanish galleon.

Learn the intriguing story of the Isaac Allerton. Many of the treasures throughout the museum were excavated from its watery grave. Find out about the people who struck it rich risking their lives to recover wealth from the sea. Then do as the ship captains once did and climb a 65-foot (20-meter) observation tower for the pinnacle of your museum experience.

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.
Interesting history/ Amazing view!

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.

This was such a fun and informative experience! We loved being able to walk through the exhibits and see all of the educational artifacts throughout the museum.
Don't forget to climb the tower!

If you get the trolley hop on and hop off bus for even 1 day, you can get a discounted ticket for this. Honestly, it's not really worth the full price. It was interesting and gives a lot of information about the shipwrecks, but it's pretty quick to get through. However, the tower at the top is worth the beautiful view!
Extremely over priced for a very short experience

Highly disappointed. It took us under 30 min. It’s two rooms and that is it. I do not recommend this even as a 30 min distraction because the price is so high!
