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.

took five of my grandkids to the museum and they had a great time. Staff is kid friendly and helpful. They handed each child several books that show different Florida fish which they later could color. Had a great time.

Nice place, nice gift shop but very little. GIves some interesting history of the inlet and area and old photos of fishing history in the area, but it was very small.

The museum tour is best combined with a deliberate activity at the Inlet--fishing or swimming. An $8 entrance fee needs to be paid to get into the park and the museum is inside the park. Watch the video. It tells the story or the 1994 net ban, which altered the dazzling Sebastian riverfront forever. The waterline on the river was... More

If you're already in Sebastian Inlet State Park, do not miss this free attraction. The museum does an excellent job telling the history of the area and the Inlet in particular. The volunteer docent was very informative and great with the kids. Most of the shell collection on display is his. Nice little gift shop too.
