The Hemingway Home & Museum was the residence of the renowned author Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway was known both for his grander-than-life personality and his amazing writing, including the books The Sun Also Rises and Farewell to Arms. The rooms and the collections on display give you an insight into the life of this famous writer. Keep a look out for the museum's many polydactyl (six-toed) cats that are rumored to be descendants of Hemingway's pet cat Snow White.
On the quiet tree-lined Truman Avenue, this small museum preserves and highlights the legacy of revered playwright Tennessee Williams, and his short writing stint and vacation in Key West that gave birth to one of his most acclaimed works - A Streetcar Named Desire. The Tennessee Williams Key West Exhibit showcases everything from an ancient typewriter used by Williams, sepia-toned photographs, never-seen-before articles and play scripts, and other artifacts that will render any literary enthusiast weak in the knees. Admission is free, although donations are welcome.
