Fun and education for kids. The shop has old-style souveniers, if you like that sort of thing. Not always someone there to discuss the displays or answer kids questions.

This is a wonderful little place to see some of the treasures found by Dale, the owner and explorer who found these items. His stories that go along with each treasure is fascinating. GO!!!

This was our second time to the museum. And this one was better then the first! First time we went the owner was not there, this time he was. He told us some amazing stories, showed us artifacts not officially on display and even let us hold some. It was an experience we will never forget. Thanks Dale!!

It's kind of a big deal... The DiscoverSea museum has some incredible artifacts, and is curated wonderfully -- it's a fun visit for everyone from a clueless kid dragged along against his will to the mildly curious to the seasoned shipwreck student. The collection consists mostly of items from one man's collection, and he's clearly put a lot of thought... More

This museum was amazing and it was FREE! I wish that I could have spent more time there but could not. My boyfriend found coins on the beach and wanted to learn more about them so we took them there. Within a few minutes they knew what ship and what type of coin it was. They are very knowledgeable about... More

Lots of interesting exhibits containing various items found at shipwreck sites, mostly local. Some Titanic artifacts also. Best of all: it's FREE! But give... More

We have visited this place more than once (and the exhibits change) and it's on the second floor of the Sea Shell Shop in Fenwick. You'd never know by looking at the outside of the building that this museum is filled with so many priceless treasures! There are real pieces recovered from shipwrecks, everything from dinner plates to personal belongs... More
