We have been to this museum a couple of times. Although it lacks the pizazz of some big city museums and may not appeal to young kids it nevertheless has a really interesting collection of artifacts and pictures pertaining to the history of the area and in particular the history of the fishing industry. An educational video presents a good... More

We had to visit the park on a work project so we all stopped by the Fishing Museum on our way through. I wouldn't think there'd be too much you could possibly do to make the history of fishing in Sebastian come alive, but these good folks gave it their best shot. There were old photos, a video documentary running... More

Seem to have plenty of people working there, half are probably volunteers but not much to look at. It is part of the admissions into the park, they should do more to fix this place up, make it so the kids would enjoy it more. Hands on things, etc.

It was a surprise to find a museum in the State Park, south side of bridge. The admission is free after you pay the park entrance free. It has a lot of old fishing equipment and was showing a film about the history of Sebastian. The staff is friendly and helpful. Ranger Terry O'Toole is a wealth of information. He... More

Perfect for the 6 year old! Many hands on activities and a little historical movie for the Ole mom! Gives a nice history about the area without feeling stuck inside all day. Free! Give a few bucks to help out. Will be closed for updating in October for a few weeks. Worth a pop in, and it's air conditioned! Nice... More

The Sebastian state park offers a turtle walk during the summer months of June and July. First you view an introductory film to learn about the turtles while the turtle scouts are on the beach looking for a turtle to come up to the land to deposit her eggs. You have to call the park ranger to make reservations and... More

How often do you get to touch and feel a huge gold bar plus feel and touch artifacts and coins from the 1700's, lost for centuries in the sea off Sebastian and other parts of Florida. You can buy authentic coins from this lost fleet.

The Sebastian Fishing Museum at the Inlet Park tells the story of how Sebastian was started. They also offer good programs on fishing today.
