If you had visited Coral Castle in the 1940s you would have been greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over 5 feet tall. He would have asked you for ten cents admission and introduced you to his fantasy world. Since it is documented that no one ever witnessed Ed's labor in building his beloved Coral Castle, some have said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient pyramids and if he could learn them, you could too. Today, you can tour the Coral Castle with our tour guides. Narration available in English, Spanish, French or German, Japanese, and Russian. Features of the Coral Castle Museum include a 9-ton gate, a Polaris telescope. We invite you to witness for yourself what millions saw on national TV's "Ancient Aliens" "Sabado Gigante's Don Francisco" "Good Morning America" "That's Incredible" "In Search Of..." "You Asked For It!" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Billy Idol wrote his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" just for us. Coral Castle is one of the Top 10 Historic Hot Spots in South Florida!!

It's amazing to see and learn all about the man who built these massive structures, while using simple machines. Great place for a quick visit and tour.

Short excursion of an hour and a half. Very interesting to see and hear stories of this monument built by a gentlemen for his sweetheart he never married. Well kept and guided tour was exceptional with history and scientific theory of construction. Worth seeing once and not too expensive.

I wasn't sure about going here, but as we were travelling south to Homestead Raceway, I saw a flag that had Coral Castle on it. So, we decided to find it and check it out. I was pleasantly impressed with this museum of sculptures. I became very intrigued with how this little man built and sculpted and moved these large... More

GRATEFUL this has been preserved. Hard to believe one man quarried, moved and carved all of this! Great tour guide. Loved the continously going tours.

Stop the car and go visit! This is a family-friendly site. The tour lasts about an hour and is interesting. How did 5-foot tall Ed mine, move, and carve these huge blocks of coral? Photography is allowed.

I have heard of this place for most of my life but have never been. What you see is very impressive and interesting Hard to believe it was built by one man. The tour is very informative and worth the time to learn about so much of the property. Not as large as I imagined but impressive none the less.... More

We stopped here and were pleasantly surprised. There is a guided tour and it was really interesting to be told all about the coral castle. This was something unusual and its not huge but it was something a little different. Nice was to spend an hour or two.

Pretty cool place, but also pretty tame for more adventurous people. Incredible what one person can do with enough determination.

I love the history and it is a unique place. Tour guides were very nice but the older man at the door & store (Alex) was a jerk. Very rude. I know people bring small coolers to eat /drink. I had my 3 year old son and husband with me. Alex was very rude and would not let me bring... More
