Had a lovely visit before Easter to this nice museum. It does a nice job of explaining the “Treasure Coast” and displays artifacts that have been recovered in the area from the 18th C Spanish fleet wreck. Will go back! Worth a visit.

The museum is small but we found it to be very interesting and educational. The volunteer working the entrance/front desk was pleasant and knowledgeable.

I love anything to do with Mel Fsher, including this small little museum. Small in stature, but big on history and interest. Went to the one in Key West...a big place....but this one is quite nice. Great location

If you have visited the Mel Fisher museum in Key West you would understand if I said that this is a distant relative. The location and setting, on the beach, are very attractive. Admission is inexpensive. The Museum has great potential: rent metal detectors aka...More

We finally visited this small museum. It was both interesting and educational. There were so many amazing artifacts on display and an optional short film about the history of the Treasure Coast. (The film is definitely worth viewing but is a bit amateurish, which is...More

A great little museum. Quite a bargain at $2. The movie was very interesting and amazing that so much treasure may still be out there. Exhibits were good, not much of the gold or jewels as I expect most that is on exhibit will be...More
