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

There is a 45 minute film that you should see first. Volunteer staff are awesome. Observation deck where you can see cannons. Comprehensive little museum with artifacts found from the wreckage of the 1715 plate fleet. Nice place to spend 1+ hours.
