About
Located in the historic Key West Bight, discover this state-of-the-art museum with hands-on exhibits, raw footage, unique artifacts, and the only scale model of Fort Jefferson at Dry Tortugas National Park. As you travel through this interactive timeline of Key West history, uncover the history of sponging, turtling, fishing, cigar making, and tourism that put Key West on the map. Touch a genuine silver bar from the Spanish Galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha that sank full of gold, silver, and emeralds during a hurricane off of Key West in 1522. Get to know Henry Flagler, John D. Rockefeller’s partner in Standard Oil, in the original paymaster’s railway car from the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway. Inside the Maggie Atwell House, see the only remaining wooden structure built by the FEC, learn about the backbreaking work of building the railroad over the open ocean and the mosquito infested mangrove swamps of the Florida Keys.

Don’t buy special tickets - Entrance Cones with Tx for Trolley and Train
It’s a good thing to do while waiting for the Trolley. (I am really glad we did not buy special tickets just to come into the museum.)
It is informative; however you learn a lot of the same information in other museums. So you are getting some repetition
The woman who checks you in is as lovely as can be and knows the schedule for both the trolley and the train. (Down to the minute.)

Neat museum!
Mar 2020
Been on a Flagler kick, and the southernmost terminal was a must-visit. Small museum but good info. Spent about an hour and a half. Did a wonderful job explaining Flagler's vision and the many engineering innovations required to achieve it.

A key question the museum did not address, and I wish it did, is answering why the railroad failed as a business enterprise after it was built (before the 1935 hurricane). Flagler had envisioned it as being part of the Panama Canal transportation chain, but it didn't play out that way. Why?

Excellent museum, especially if you are into locomotive history

I had high hopes for this museum and it did not disappoint. In addition to all of the artifacts, the short films were also very interesting. Spent well over an hour here. Highly recommend.

Excellent source for Key West history
We spent about an hour and a half here learning about Key West’s origins and development over time. There are a number of well done exhibits, we especially enjoyed the timeline that correlated what was happening in the broader world to what was happening in Ke y West. Likely your best source of information about Flagler’s Overseas Railway short of reading a book on it. This was a delightful small town museum with a broader regional reach. Well worth your time, highly recommended!

How Key West came to be
Nov 2019 • Solo
I saw the Shipwreck Treasure Museum and Sails to Rails (formerly Flagler Station) Museum on the same day. They both explain how shipwreck salvaging created the wealth in Key West, and the railroad part explained how Standard Oil business partner to John Rockefeller, Henry Flagler, built the East Coast Railroad Extension from 1905-1912, connecting all the Florida Keys together through 42 bridges to Key West. Both the Museums are very interesting in understanding how the Florida Keys and Key West developed. I would recommend this museum.
