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... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
My wife and I visited the Mel Fisher Museum because we wanted to learn more about how the treasure coast got its name. He must have been quite a character - and along with Waldo Sexton made two people from the state of Indiana and Purdue University who contributed greatly to the lore of this area of Florida. The video... 更多
Went there with my children and grandchildren. Everybody had fun. Movie was not big-screen adventure, but interesting and informative. If you are tired of Disney or Universal and are looking for a fun place to see real treasure, or even buy some, this is a great place ! Heft a real heavy gold bar ! Get your picture taken with... 更多
Interesting museum, a bit dated however. And a bit too focused on the Incredible Life Experiences of Mel Fisher. Still, it's his place, he can blow his own horn if he wants to. (And his grade school band saxophone IS in one of the display cases!) It does give a pretty good picture of what was happening in the Treasure... 更多
Small museum with a great deal of information. Nice real replicas on display. Much gold and a sales section with real salvaged gold and silver material.Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Bit pricier for admissions.
If you're into nautical treasures and history, definitely take a stop in. Lots of great exhibits and artifacts. Displayed nicely and staff was friendly. Not a huge place, but definitely lots of information.
We went last summer with a groupon ticket. It was very interesting and we enjoyed looking at all of the treasures and reading about the adventures of finding the treasure and the ships.The museum was a bit old, however I think they have recently done some remodeling. We would recommend it for an easy afternoon, to learn more about our... 更多
