Welcome to Key West
Located closer to Cuba than to Miami, Key West is Florida’s independent and spirited southernmost subtropical paradise. It’s a unique confluence of history, climate, natural beauty, cultural diversity, architecture and unabashed romantic appeal. Embrace luxury on the island’s resorts, be amazed by the wealth of flora and fauna and wander the shopping streets of the Old Town. This is a destination far removed from the rest of the world.

Key West historical landmarks & museums
Martin Hellings House
This unique historic house was constructed in 1892 by Captain Martin Hellings and is one of few historic houses in Key West not built of wood. It’s also the site of Key West’s first public library.
Lighthouse & Keepers’ Museum
Climb the 88 steps to the observation deck for one of the best views of the island and the beautiful water that surrounds it. The museum houses artefacts collected since the lighthouse was built in 1847 and tells the many stories of the keepers who lived there. The quarters, grounds and the lighthouse itself have all been faithfully restored following the lighthouse’s decommission.
Shipwreck Treasure Museum
Step back in time and discover Key West’s unique maritime heritage and learn how it became the richest city in the United States. The museum combines actors, films and actual artefacts from the 1985 discovery of the wrecked vessel Isaac Allerton, which sank in 1856 on the treacherous Florida Keys reef. Join master wrecker Asa Tift and his wrecking crew as he tells you the story of how the early pioneers earned their living by salvaging the shipwrecks.
U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ingham Maritime Museum
Discover the history of one of the country’s most decorated ships at this floating museum. The Cutter Ingham served in World War II, Vietnam and the Cuban Crisis and now serves as a national memorial to those killed in action while it was at sea. The ship is recognised as a National Historic Landmark.
Audubon House and Tropical Gardens
Discover Key West’s creative side
Museum of Art & History at the Custom House
Towering over the historic seaport, the Custom House is as stunning a sight to visitors today as it was when it opened in 1891. Originally home to the island’s customs office, postal service and district courts, this four-storey architectural marvel was built to accommodate the increasing population and wealth accumulating from Key West’s lucrative trade routes and maritime industries. Today, the award-winning museum weaves together two centuries of history, art, people and events.
