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 A 40-minute video was a little outdated but still very informative.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

This small museum features the history of the shipwrecked Spanish Fleet destroyed by a hurricane from which treasures are still being recovered. It houses many artifacts recovered from the wrecks. A visit to this small museum is well worth your time. Admission is only $2 per person.

We've lived in Sebastian for 10 years and it took us that long to visit this neat little museum. Admission is almost free at $2 and get there early enough for the 45 min. film. Be sure to go out to the "boardwalk" on the dune to get a sense of proximity to the ocean. If you read all of... More

We enjoyed this little museum, visiting on a rainy day didn't keep us from walking up to the lookout outside. Even the walkway held informative little plaques about the local vegetation. Inside contained history of shipwrecks in the area, one specific fleet that is still being recovered. I enjoyed the old artifacts and the story behind the Spanish fleet, especially... More
