We stopped by to visit this place. We love diving and thought it might be interesting. Wit was full of history and lots of information. Interesting displays and a nice local stop when in the mid keys.

Very nice if you enjoy history and scuba diving. It starts with the very beginning of diving and covers diving around the world.

We happened across this museum quite by chance. They have an extensive collection of diving equipment right from the earliest days of diving to the modern age. It's informative and very interesting. Even our 4-year old daughter was captivated!

This place has an extensive and very impressive collection of commercial diving gear through the ages. Well worth a stop to learn about the mysterious world of commercial diving.

The museum was much bigger than we anticipated. Very cool collection of helmets from around the world with some hands-on exhibits. Makes you appreciate how far diving has come.
