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

Myself, my husband and out 7 and 5 year old sons visited the museum a couple weeks ago. We were very interested in the history of this beautiful area and found it very informative and cool to see all the artifacts inside. There is a movie too, but with two young kids we only made it through the first 20... More

The museum gives a delightful overview of the Treasure Coast sunken treasure and a history of a ship which sank just off the coast where the museum is located. The video shared excellent highlights of local treasure hunters and the museum is filled with interesting treasure and displays. It is a FANTASTIC place to go on a hot summer day... More

Museum was quite a pleasant surprise. Entrance fee was only $2.00. Volunteers were quite helpful and knowledgeable. They really make you understand why we are called the Treasure Coast. A 40-minute video was a little outdated but still very informative. Museum has items found from shipwrecks just offshore. It makes you want to buy a metal detector and hit the... More

We wrestled, well, I wrestled while my wife waited patiently for a decision, on whether to visit this or the Fischer museum. We settled on the McLarty because of the difference in price and because it was part of a public park rather than a private museum. We're very glad we made this choice. It was a great value for...

Not as big as the Mel Fisher museum but interesting one the less. Nice gift shop too. History of the Spanish ship wrecks from the 1600's is highlighted. Admission at $2.00 is quite reasonable as well.

Whether you live on the Treasure Coast of Florida, or are just visiting, you need to spend some time here to learn the history of The Treasure Coast. THeir collection of actual artifacts and photos of amazing history are enough, but they also have a small theater that shows a nice film explaining what you will see in the museum.... More
