Movie is a little old and needs updating, but the grandchildren learned a lot

Visited with our grandchildren on a lovely sunny day. The movie was a little grainy but the content was excellent on history and types of sponges. After the movie, we went into... read more

Visited with our grandchildren on a lovely sunny day. The movie was a little grainy but the content was excellent on history and types of sponges. After the movie, we went into the Sponge museum. Frankly, I would get in there and do some cleaning and dusting of the exhibits AND the windows needed Windex badly. Next, in the shop... More

The owner of the store was very helpful in assisting me to purchase a sponge. After watching the video, I had several questions and he was very knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed the video....found the history of this little town was so intriguing!

This is a small shop that also has a video on sponge diving. There are several relics from sponge diving in Tarpon Springs.

Would have liked to see the video but felt a little rushed to move right along once our souvenirs had been selected. Prices were reasonable

We went here as children and not much has changed. The video is even the same! It is neat to watch and learn a bit about sponges and I would visit just for the fun and great sponge prices.
