If you had visited Coral Castle in the 1940s you would have been greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over 5 feet tall. He would have asked you for ten cents admission and introduced you to his fantasy world. Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed Ed's labor in building his beloved Coral Castle, some have said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too. Today, you can tour the Coral Castle with our tour guides. Narration available in English, Spanish, French or German, Japanese, and Russian. Features of the Coral Castle Museum include a 9-ton gate, a Polaris telescope. We invite you to witness for yourself what millions saw on national TV's "Ancient Aliens" "Sabado Gigante's Don Francisco" "Good Morning America" "That's Incredible" "In Search Of..." "You Asked For It!" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Billy Idol wrote his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" just for us. Coral Castle is one of the Top 10 Historic Hot Spots in South Florida!!

My family has ALWAYS talked about this place, so to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday we finally came. We were not disappointed. The tour guides are great with a lot of entertaining facts and speculations regarding the castle. It is really an interesting place he created.

Having only lived 2 hours away from the castle, my wife goaded me to take her and I'm glad I did. It's crazy how a 100 lb, 5 ft. tall man accomplished such a feat, not once but twice, as he disassembled the first castle, that was located ten miles south of the present location and reconstructed it at its...

All the hopeless romantics out there will love the story behind this structure, and all the rest will love the artistic creation set before them. The castle offers many one of a kind sculptures and integrated art throughout the property. The background story behind the castle is just as interesting in my opinion as the castle itself. Admission price includes... More

I found it just amazing to realize how much one man was able to accomplish. Loved his stone recliner, but that sun dial was just extraordinary! It may not be huge, but it sure is interesting. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. He told us a lot about the tools and methods used. Very educational, too.

The coral castle was a neat place to go. It is a very interesting place. It is unique. The tour guides are very friendly and have alot of information. Also it is a continuous tour that keeps repaying itself so you don't have to show up at a certain time. Just hop in when you show up. The coral castle... More

Coral Castle is near were I live but even I was aware of the museum but thought it was not worth a visit. To see carving coral? I was wrong, very wrong.... I went with a friend and found a very interesting place, you must take the tour (which is included with the admission price) and after the tour you... More

Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed! The tour guide was well versed on the history of Coral Castle and was extremely entertaining. It is a mystery ad to how Ed Leedskainin built this. He worked from sundown to sunset to complete back in the 30's and 40's. If you have children above 8-9 years, they too will enjoy the tour. We... More

Loved this place. Very unique and pretty. Tour guide was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and witty. You really need to stop here if you are in the area and enjoy unusual attractions. Children also would probably enjoy this.
