On a rainy day we drive up to visit. Cost $2 a person. Small museum but the 45 minute movie was so interesting. I would recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive way to spend some time! I now know why it is called the treasure coast.

We are locals and take all our company to visit the museum. Both children and adults enjoy looking at the displays and walking the outside path to the ocean where they can look out to the location of the shipwrecks. Although the video is old, everyone enjoys watching it and comes away talking about the shipwrecks and wanting to go... More

Just a small museum and its not spectacular but the story is fabulous, an incredible find by a man who found black disks of metal which turned out to be silver from a shipwreck...the history here is fascinating.

The museum is filled with hundreds of artifacts and descriptive details explaining how a few survivors from the wrecked ships came ashore and struggled to live in the mosquito infested jungle of shrubs and vines. There was no fresh water available and no one lived in this area so these survivors had to forage for every bit of food and... More

Thismis a must seenif traveling in the area. Come in and watch the movie and then take your time looking atbwhatnhas been recovered. Mostnis geared to the shipsmthat sank in the storm of 1715, but there is so much to see. You will enjoynit as much as I did.

What a great little museum. There is a cool diorama of the survivors of the doomed 1715 fleet, an old but informative video and lots of treasures that have been found on this, the site of the survivors camp. The museum guide was a wealth of knowledge and told a lot of very interesting stories about the survivors and the... More

I have been visiting Cocoa Beach for many years, but only discovered this hidden gem to visit from a local a book of days out around Cocoa Beach. We went down to visit and were amazed that we had not heard of it before. The museum is small but so interesting as Florida has very little history from the 1500s.... More
