If you are a diver it is wonderful to read all of the history and look at the memorabilia. May not be for younger kids as it is mostly artifacts and history based items. Definitely really interesting for my husband and I! We spent a couple hours just reading all of the interesting facts!
Long time vacationers to Islamorada. Been driving past for years saying "we should stop" but never seemed to make the time. Made a point this year as our kids are old enough now to appreciate it. What a little gem of a museum! Great collection, very informative, family friendly. If you like history, diving, or just a good museum this... 更多
My daughter is a diver so this was a must. To see how it was done and the stuff they had to get in and out of and the DANGER. A great rainy day opportunity.
Not being a diver I was bored after the first few minutes but others in the group were fascinated. There was also a group of kids (which made me want to hurry thru) and there are some "hands on" things for them to play with so it seemed to be a great plae for field trips and families.
Lots of history. Cool exhibits. Kinda leans towards professional diving. I am a recreational diver (scuba). I still really enjoyed it. Worth the entrance fee. Spend an hour or two just checking out the artifacts, helmets, suits... very cool.
When you see this place you wont expect much or at least that's what my husband thought, but was he wrong! This museum has an abundance of information and great collection of diving items. Also, we had just recently been Married and they noticed or vehicle said "just married" & they made the point to find us in the museum... 更多
This comes across as amazingly cheesy but is in fact quite serious and extremely interesting. I don't dive but I learned a great deal. An hour and a half well spent! If you pick up a brochure at the Islamorada Visitor Centre, you'll get a couple bucks off the entrance fee!
Diving geeks really would be amazed at this place. Incredible amount of real life historical diving memorabilia, much of it you could touch. They also provided the kids with a scavenger hunt which helped to maintain their interest while parents (I) lingered too long reading details of what I saw. Very educational. Friendly staff. Recommended if you're at all into... 更多
I visited with a group of Boy Scouts, and we spent over an hour at the museum. They have covered the history of diving very well, and have a lot of hands-on and interactive exhibits. In addition, there is great info on commercial and Navy diving, and the development of recreational diving. The staff were very friendly, and group discounts... 更多
As a former US Navy Deep Sea Diver I must say I have only been to 1 o2 diving museums that are as nice as this one. I was a member for a few years. They have monthly special guests that come in and discuss all types of topics from treasure hunting to the US Navy Sea Lab System. They... 更多
