This historical home and museum offers an immersive way to learn about one of the greatest writers our world has ever seen.

You can find the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum nestled in the tropical paradise of Key West. The world-renowned writer of classics such as The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms traveled around the globe for most of his life, but he really took a liking to Key West and made it one of his permanent residences. In the 1930s, Hemingway primarily spent his summers in Key West, frequenting local establishments like Sloppy Joe’s – which still happens to stand today.

Hemingway’s second wife Pauline’s uncle bought the home in Key West for the couple in 1931. It was run down, but they saw past this and instead noticed great potential and value in the home. They did plenty of remodeling that can be appreciated today by the visitors that come here. Guests can stroll through and see the personalized traces that Hemingway included and left behind after his passing, as well as learn about the very intriguing life he led. The pool at the residence is one of the most fascinating portions of the home, as it was the first-ever in-ground pool to be built in Key West. The grounds are made up of beautiful gardens to explore and there are about 60 cats that call the Hemingway House their home! Hemingway loved cats, so his legacy still lives on not only through his remarkable written works, but also through the very special touches throughout his oasis in Key West.
