Ernest Hemingway Museum Gardens



The Ernest Hemingway Museum Gardens are located in Key West, Florida.  These are the gardens which surround the Spanish colonial home where famous writer, Ernest Hemingway wrote most of his novels.  There are many lush, tropical plants on the grounds.  But the most interesting thing, in my opinion, are the cats.  They are descendants from the fifty cats Hemingway used to have.  Many of them are six-toed poly dactyl cats.  And they are everywhere!


The cost of admission for adults, which includes a guided tour, is $13.00.  The cost for children, is $6.00.  The gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

  1. Talk about cool cats! I'd be tempted to get their paw prints.

    Be well, Sherry.

    1. That would be cool. If you got some card stock and had the cats give you paw prints, you could frame it.

    1. It's not every day you see 6-toed cats.

  7. It is rumoured that many people in the English county of Norfolk have six fingers. Half a million people and only three surnames they say. A bit in-bred like those cats!

  8. Now that would be something to check out. I wonder if I have ancestors from Norfolk?
