Sweet museum with a good history of the 1715 shipwrecks just off the coast from Sebastian. Well worth the stop. Nice little board walk stroll to an unspoiled beach with great views. Worth the few bucks it costs to get in. Make it a stop when you're in the area.

The McLarty Museum, otherwise known as the Survivors' Museum provides a unique piece of Florida history. Exactly 300 years ago, in 1715, 10 or 11 Spanish treasure galleons went down in a hurricane off the coast of Florida. About 1500 people survived, and then commenced to salvage the treasure. The museum presents this history, along with recreations, artifacts, and a... More

We visit the McLarty Treasure Museum on the afternoon of 28 Jan 2015. There were several people in the museum when we arrived, but plenty of space to move around. Entrance fee was only $2pp. The museum isn't large, so we first took in the documentary, that lasts about 45 minutes. The documentary was done for A&E about 14 years... More

Nothing to write home about in the museum but the film is well worth the 20 mins. And love the view from the observation deck. We always take visiting friends, include the Mel Fisher Museum and you come out ready to hunt treasure.

great place to learn about the history of the area, and the history of the treasure coast. A little musty inside, but not very expensive visit. Only takes about an hour or so to look at everything and watch a small movie about the area.

We were visiting an uncle in Vero Beach and due to weather our golf game got rained out. My wife found this museum and dragged two guys who would rather be on the links. Once there we found a small but interesting museum with a film showing that did a great job of explaining what the Treasure Coast is about.... More
