We had docked on the Navel Base and was not allowed to roam about but the ship was viewable for the port.

It was a great time on the tour of the Ingham. Well put together to teach about the history of the most decorated ship. Very nostalgically interesting. Highly recommend adding this to your trip when you're in Key West!

This museum was nicely kept and clean. I especially liked the original 1988 details they kept. If you want something to offset the party atmosphere this would be a good choice/

Thought we'd take a walk and see this only to find out it's only open on the weekends. Check the hours before you go.
