After many attempts with bad timing on our part, we finally got to board the Ingham. It is an amazing part of history. Take your time and look at the details. My husband could have spent all day there.

You absolutely cannot go to Key West and not visit this place. The history on this vessel is amazing.

Went there to see the sunset on a Friday night. The museum is closed but the deck is open for sunset. The admission is $5 which includes a drink. Great view, breeze, cold beer and friendly staff, what else can you ask for?

What a good experience from start to end. Amazing history and the possibility to visit this legendary ship. Parking was a bit tricky. Suggest to go early in the day, so it does not get too hot. No air conditioning. Great visit with kids.

My husband and I went to the Coast Guard Cutter Ingham and were truly awed. This ship is amazing, its size and history are inspiring. A must see if your in Key West and it's only $10!

Nice job keeping her spruced up, as a young Coastie in the 70's I was trained by a boatswain mate from the Ingham, Great to see her afloat.
