What a beautifully restored ship she is! Nothing has changed since she was decommissioned in the late 80's. A wonderful piece of history that these folks have chosen to restore. The tour is self guided and totally worth it. On fridays and Saturdays you can...More

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.

It's not their fault, but construction right in front of the ship makes for a very long walk from the trolley stop. This is the one place in Key West where you are better off taking your car. Consequently, I was so hot and tired...More

Great for history lovers, and kids. Nice history lesson to see what our service men went through back in the day. The cutter was left as is and several items from the crew are still in their place.
