"Hemmingway House" Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum Tip by Dutchnatasja
Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West: 28 reviews and 58 photos
You have to visit the former house of Ernest Hemmingway. The Hemingway House is the only house in Key West with a basement and the first house on the island to get a swimming pool (Hemingway was outraged at what the pool ended up costing). You can take a tour, which is very nice. Definitely take the guided tour, the guide will tell you great story's and offer insights and anecdotes into the Hemingway’s, the house and the town. The furnishings and his writing space are much as they were when he lived there. It's a beautiful place to spend a few hours. If you are a cat lover, than this is paradise for you, there are so many cats walking around the house, that I lost counting. They all are descendents of his original cats. Look even closer and you'll see that the rampant inbreeding has left many of them with strange deformities like "6" toes per paw and stubby tails.
