  • We had very informative tour with ex Fire Chief Castro. You could tell he loved his job there. Lots of history here in this building, and he did a great job of presenting the history of the Key West.....  more »
  • Great museum with tons of history. The gentleman giving the tour worked at the house when it was active. Their knowledge, memories, and banter made the perfect tour experience. Don't forget to smell the Key Lime leaves when you're there!
  • Mixed feelings on this gentleman was very nice and would tell us the kids could play or touch something then another guy would yell at them to stop. This happened multiple times. I would not recommend this place if you have kids. Which is so sad since my 4 yo loves everything fireman.
