We stopped by here on our way to Key Largo. We had Ken the tour guide and he was great. He gives you the history of the place and it's quite amazing how one man did all this. The grounds are well kept and beautiful....More

The hefty price tag of almost $40 per couple is what caused me to rate it as poor. The place is small (about 10 min) and the swinging gates no longer function, and certainly NOT a castle of any sort. The guides were very informative...More

Really neat place to visit but much smaller than expected. Tour guides were super knowledgeable and enthusiastic; and really wanted everyone to have a good time.

While it's amazing that this one man did all this stuff by himself, the museum has outlived it's life as a place of interest at the hefty price tag of almost $40 a couple. Too much money for how small it is and the fact...More

I would plan on about two hours. There is a tour all the time so you just tag along and learn everything about Ed and his coral . We enjoyed it very much and you probably will too. Have fun and sit in the Mother in law chair.
