Really nice museum! Lots to look at. When you are done inside, go out to the observation area for a great view of the Atlantic ocean.

Fascinating artifacts and Florida history from as early as the 1700s! The museum was fascinating and the staff went above and beyond to show us articles and pictures of more of the recent treasure finds!
