This museum features many objects from Mel Fisher's treasure hunting ocean expeditions. It is interesting to see Spainish treasure and other historical objects from shipwrecks from long ago. It also gives one a history of the Fisher families efforts to discover old shipwrecks and reclaim the treasures from those ships. This includes Spainish doubloons, gold jewelry, ancient weapons and cannons of early spainards. There are also changing galleries. When I last visited objects from a slave ship bringing slaves from Africa that sank 100's of years ago were there and that collection was both interesting and heart- breaking. It is a museum that both older children and adults would find interesting. The giftshop offers the typical gift items and many books on the Fishers treasure hunting and on other areas of Key West culture.
