Doug Maleno
Doug Maleno
Doug was born and raised in Massachusetts. About ten years ago he traded in the snow and cold of New England for the sun and warmth of the Florida Keys. Doug is a lifelong history and literature buff, so working as a tour guide at the Hemingway Home is a perfect fit for him. The cats are an added bonus!


We would like you to introduce you to our Staff. Simply click on the thumbnail pictures of each Staff Member to see a larger picture of each and read a short “bio” they have written to introduce themselves to you.

While you have the option of taking a guided tour of the museum or exploring the attraction on your own in a self-guided tour mode, we recommend taking the guided tour when visiting the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum in Key West.

Guided tours are conducted about every 15 minutes from 9-5 daily, take about 30 minutes and though the tour will inform you of the overall life and times of Ernest Hemingway, the tours will mostly focus on the years Hemingway lived here in this house in Key West. Key artifacts, paintings, furnishings and architectural details will be identified on the guided tour.

With dozens of historic attractions in Key West you’ll find that this island prides itself in offering real tour guides that can respond to your questions and provide detailed information tailored to your interests.
