Key West Shipwreck Museum
The Isaac Allerton sank in 1856 near the Keys. Shortly after the wreck, rescuers (called Key West wreckers) picked up the survivors. They couldn't get all of the cargo as the ship had sunk in very deep waters. However, what they were able to grab netted them about $50 grand! In 1985, another group rediscovered the wreck. The museum makes history come alive by using actors in period costumes, props, and actual artifacts from the shipwreck to entertain visitors. It's open every day from 10 AM to 4:30 PM. Pricing packages vary; see the website for details.
