This is the only ghost tour in Key West where you will meet the infamous Robert the Doll. While other ghost tours stop outside of haunted locations, our tour takes place inside an old Civil War fort that USA Today named one of the 10 Most Haunted Destinations in America. Every ticket directly benefits Key West's oldest non-profit organization. We actively engage spirits, so our hunts are not for everyone. If you are looking for a true paranormal experience, this is the Key West ghost tour for you. Book General Admission for the 1-hour guided tour. Book VIP for an additional hour after the guided tour hunting ghosts on your own.


The ghost hunt takes you through the casemates, rampart galleries, and exhibit halls of the haunted fort where you will hunt ghosts, discover ghost hunting techniques and learn the dark and fascinating Civil War history. The evening hunt includes exclusive access to the hall of dolls and tunnel of death which are restricted during regular museum hours. The first 55 minutes of the tour are on foot inside the fort. Short walks between rooms at an easy pace. Each hunt concludes with a 25-minute sitdown lockdown with the infamous Robert the Doll. VIP tickets holders get access to all three floors of the citadel, the haunted dollhouse, and the Hell's Kitchen wing of the fort. The hunt includes the use of ghost hunting equipment like K-2 Meters, spirit dowsing rods, FLIR thermal imagers, spirit boxes, REM Pods and trigger objects. There is time at the end to take photos with Robert the Doll if you are feeling brave.
