You will need about an hour, especially if you like the details. There are a lot of things you can read, paintings you can stare into, and thought-provoking displays. I do like the narration provided by the tour guides. Key West has really taken off and it's historical focus. This is a town that preserves everything, just checked the building codes. Everything has to be kept just the way it is. What a great tour, just take your time and soak it all in.
Fans of the book writer and artist will love the detail provided in a rare glimpse of his Key West Home. We typically only remember those of yesteryear by video, music, or photograph not by walking right through their home. It makes it all so special for all that take the scenic tour, where your guide presents the story in pieces. You stop at key parts of the property for brief presentations and then move on to another location to ponder the past and relive the glory.
You get your moneys worth at this Old Town Attraction. Save this for a cloudy day, as you want to use the big sun for The Reef Trips.
