Key West Shipwreck Museum

Hotels near Key West Shipwreck Museum, Key West, United States .

The Key West Shipwreck Museum, located at 1 Whitehead Street in Key West, Florida, provides visitors with a unique perspective on the events and style of life which originally formed Key West. The museum combines different ways of presenting the theme at hand, mixing staff actors with real artifacts from many shipwrecks off the coast and a 65-foot tall observation tower which visitors can climb.

The main focus of the museum is on the 1985 rediscovery of the Issac Allerton vessel, which had originally sunk in 1856, and turned out to be the most laden in riches of all the shipwrecks to grace Key West's shores. More generally, the museum tackles the issue of how wreckers built the community up into one of the richest in the nation.

Visits are available each day of the year between 9:40am and 5pm; tickets cost $12 for adults and $5 for kids. Find out more by visiting the museum's official website at http://www.shipwreckhistoreum.com/.
