Affordable and educational. It takes about an hour to go through the displays. Souvenirs are over-priced and do not include sales tax.

I don't know how this museum received good reviews. Driving into the car lot, one sees about 14 submersibles that are rusting and not labeled clearly or at all. We opened the entry door that was in need of painting. We entered the musty smelling museum and paid our modest entry fee. It is a shame that this place was... More

Had a lot more than I expected. $5 entry price is a good value. Really informative. Not great info on basic stuff. But really cool stuff.

What a cute little museum to spend an hour or so walking through. My husband and daughter scuba dive and she is interested in marine biology, so there was a lot for her to learn and see. We didn't even have it on our list of places to see while vacationing, but we drove by it and couldn't pass it... More

I love this place! There are all sorts of exhibits, friendly staff and a cheap price! I learned a lot here. Panama City is lucky to have this little gem!

Cool old submersibles and examples of old diving history and equipment. It's not a big slick commercial operation but I'm glad to see this stuff preserved. My kid LOVES playing in the sub!

We spent a few hours here reading all the information. We thought it was a little bit basic in the building that it is housed in, but the price is so low, they probably can't afford to make it any nicer. We loved the outside exhibits. We learned so much.
