Enter through Sea Shell City. It is upstairs. Check their hours first. Hours are different than shop. It is interesting and fun for all ages: kids, teens, adults. Kids also like the souvenir shop downstairs!

This is a small museum above sea shell city. No admission fee but accepts donations. A nice variety of info and things pulled off wrecks. Very small space so but you could spend 45 minutes seeing and reading all the stuff.

I was not expecting much, but once I got there I was surprised to see all the sucken artifacts! It's bigger than I thought. The history behind each piece was amazing to learn about.

Our family of 4 (kids ages 9 & 12) all enjoyed walking through this shipwreck museum and reading the stories of the ships and their voyages. Impressive collection and so neat to see items from the Titanic! Free admission and gift shop is not overpriced.

I just recently visited this museum for the second time. The first time was over twenty years ago. I've told the story for twenty years of the museum owner pulling out gold bars for us to handle and chains to put around our necks. Now,...More
