HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!Flag review
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Key West Shipwreck Museum. Not only were the exhibits fascinating, but the museum's cast really made our experience. The kids really enjoyed the climb to the top of the tower where we witnessed incredible panoramic views of Key West. Definitely a must-go with kids!!
