This is the kind of place that I am always curious about. Will it be a hit or a wash? It turns out that it is somewhere in-between. There is a small entrance fee, after which you are guided into a room where a movie...More

I take most of the people who come to visit me to Mel Fisher's museum. The story of the sunken Treasure fleet is fascinating and for a nominal fee you get a detailed education on how the Treasure Coast got its' name.

Okay museum on treasure hunting off the Treasure Coast of Sebastian. Some interesting features and exhibits, good for about an hour.

We spent an interesting hour or so in the museum. There is a short movie clip that introduces you to some of the treasure hunting operations. The rest of the museum is full of artifacts that were discovered right offshore. Pretty fascinating. Cheap.

Spent some time learning about treasure right off this coast in Florida. It's a bit smaller then his place in the Keys West. Was off season so very laid back, enjoyed it very much.

Although this is a small museum we found many beautiful and historical "treasures" from many of the unfortunate Spanish galleons that were shipwrecked in the Florida waters so many years ago. The price is nominal, we actually found a good deal on Groupon. The museum...More
