Shipwreck Historeum Description

Step back to Key West of 1851 and discover the treacherous world of shipwrecking and how it made Key West the richest city in the United States. Live actors, artifacts, laser technology and a 60’ lookout tower make the experience one of a kind. Guests will enjoy a video presentation about the shipwrecking industry. Filled with interviews, film clips and underwater footage, the video takes place in a re-created wrecker’s warehouse.

Hear the story of the Isaac Allerton, which wrecked off of Key West in 1856. On display are many of the treasures from the wrecks of the Isaac Allerton and others. Visitors step back 150 years in history as they meet Asa Tift in his warehouse. The families whose fortunes were made in this exciting yet dangerous industry reveal their stories. Climb up to the 65’ captain’s observatory and watch the reef for wrecks like the wrecking captains of the 19th century.
