User Reviews
One of America's greatest authors and iconic figures, Ernest Hemingway, once called Key West home and did some of his best writing on the island at the Hemingway House. Now a museum with gardens, a pool and dozens of cats, Key West's Hemingway House is an absolute must for fans of literature that want an insight into one of our nation's great minds.

A small home, the Hemingway House doesn’t take all that long to explore, but is still one of the most popular attractions on the island. Tours last about half and hour, but can be crowded when the cruise ships are in town. You can explore the house, garden, grounds and pool at your leisure, but don’t expect it to take more than a couple of hours. Top tip: go early in the morning, as Hemingway House was built in the 1800s, long before the advent of air conditioning.


How long do people usually stay at this attraction?
The Hemingway House is rather small, and exploring the home, pool and grounds on your own won’t take more than a couple of hours. Tours last around thirty minutes, although kids will love playing with the friendly, six-toed cats all afternoon.
Are there any restaurants nearby Hemingway House?
Key West is a small and compact island, so there is nothing that is more than a couple of miles from Hemingway House. However there are also numerous eating options within walking distance as well, and close by you’ll find Bobalu’s Southern Café on Truman Avenue,Six-Toed Cat on Whitehead Street and a whole plethora of cafes, restaurants and bars just one block away on Duval Street.
