To see how one of America's greatest writer lived and worked, you should definitely visit his house which was turned into a museum.

The Ernest Hemingway Museum looks pretty much the same as int the time Hemingway lived there. Full of precious artifacts, such as Picasso and Klee paintings, stuffed animals and the writer's personal items, the museum provides the visitor an environment which is truly unique. Seeing the preserved setting enables you to have a glimpse into the life of a great writer.

We had so much fun and when we left we felt we became richer in knowledge!
