A neat place, but definitely a niche experience if you are into diving and scientific research underwater. They have a lot of artifacts and some interesting stories can be found. Overall, the space is not set up or presented well. Part of it seems to be a work in progress. Would like to see it better organized and more "focused".
We traveled from Dothan just to see this attraction. It was well worth the trip. If you have any interest at all in the topic of diving, especially government-sponsored deep-sea exploration and research, you should not miss the Museum of M in the S. There are displays and artifacts dealing with the earliest days of deep-sea exploration, up to modern... 更多
Drove by this museum on the way to taking my kids to swim practice while on vacation, and chose to stop in to see all the historical relics on display. VERY interesting historical pieces out on the property. I did not have time to go in and visit.
The nearby naval station apparently specializes in deep sea work, hence the presence of this museum. I must, we drove past it 5+ times during our vacation before stopping. If you enjoy unique military and deeps-sea machinery, then you MUST SEE this.
This is small museum, but we found it very interesting. It is also very reasonable. $5 for adults, and kids 6 and under are free. So for $30 our party of 8 was able to walk around the museum. The woman working at the museum was also very friendly and knowledgeable. My kids had fun looking at the old dive... 更多
The museum is small but has an amazing assortment of historic diving gear and submersibles that is probably unrivaled. They could probably use some volunteer help to get better organized but where else can you try on a brass diving helmet or climb inside a submarine? $5 for adults. A quick side trip well worth the stop.
This place was really small and a bit shabby. It also smelled really weird. It did have a couple interesting things to see, but we went through and saw everything in about 15 minutes. There was lots of different sea equipment, a large fish tank and a small sub you could climb into. There were also small displays with barbies... 更多
This small roadside museum has some interesting artifacts and displays about the development of diving, including the dive helmet worn by the Navy diver that worked on salvaging the USS Maine in Havana Harbor over 100 years ago. The enthusiastic staff turned my visit in a positive direction, as they obviously love their quirky little museum. Like many small roadside... 更多
