This was very interesting for the entire family We brought my nephews, aged 5 and 11 along as they were quite keen on pirates' treasure . The story of the Atocha's sinking and re-discovery was presented in a sufficiently dramatic manner, along with having some of the Loot on display as to make a vivid impression on adults and children...

We stopped in for a look at the treasures as some were found near by. This is a small museum but very well laid out and full of fun information and... treasure. There is a old but very nice film about Mel, his family and his treasure hunting buddies. Hard to believe these finds were right off the coast. Also... More

I had lived in this area many years and never visited, so on a rainy dreary day, decided to check it out. It is small, but filled with lots of history, and a good way to spend an hour or two, learning about Spanish galleons and treasure hunting history.

For the $5 admission for 55 and older I guess it was 30 minutes worth of air conditioning on a hot day. Seemed more about the man than the treasure.

The price was cheap , but it was just okay not as much in the museum as I thought. Went through it after short movie in 15 mins. Not impressed

This is smaller than the museum in Key West, but is worth visiting. Admission was $7 and I spent about an hour to 1.5 hours there. There are some amazing artifacts, including gold, silver, jewels, and pottery as well as articles from Mel Fisher's life on display. A gift shop selling things of interest for kids up to coins priced... More

I enjoyed my visit, there are plenty of behind the scenes information that makes you understand the rewards as well as the risks involved. I thought it was entertaining for a whole family and certainly engaging enough for adults with even the slightest interest in the water.

This is a small museum with lots to see. There is a video of the owner and his wife and crew. Explains how he discovered sunken treasure from Spanish ships from around 1715. The museum has lots of silver coins, artifacts, bars, and gold. My husband is a treasure hunter and likes to metal detect so seeing this was very... More

I'm a snow bird in nearby Vero Beach so we scan the area for new sights or restaurants. This is very reasonably priced (with the online museum coupon). $5 each for seniors and a coupon off $5 off = $5 for two. Takes about two casual hours to see the introductory movie (recommended!!) and peruse the small displays of treasure... More

Interesting treasures and other artifacts from the 1715 Spanish treasure fleet that sunk offshore here, and from the Atocha which sunk in 1622 west of Key West. These ships were the victims of hurricanes. We watched a short film, about Mel Fisher and his quest for sunken Spanish treasure ships in Florida ocean waters. Worth watching before visiting the small... More
