    Chief Castro has poured his heart into this place. He started with the department in 1962 and became chief in the 80's. There is so much to see and it's very interesting. I lived in Key West in the 90...  more »

    The Curator was wonderful. He gave his tour and handed out fire man helmets to the kids while they pretended to drive the old engine. Lots of history.  more »

    This is a gem of key west! We had a private tour with retired Cheif Carlo. He shared more history of the island than the other tours we went on. He also had a plethora of information on the development of fire rescue gear, attack tactics, and water storage. This stop is kid friendly and they have 2 for trucks to sit on.

    We had a great visit to the museum. We had a retired fire chief take us around and told us all about the fire service and Key West. Well worth the visit !

    With a really nice guide who really showed how it was in the old days, as well as an insight to how it is today, I learned about the history of the town and some intresting toughts from a local. 3 Hours went by like nothing, and you get to sit in an old (and new) firetruck! Might not be perfect for a very young child but if you want to visit, there is some toys for the little ones as well.

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
