Very interesting and interactive. There are many facts and displays that catch your attention. My kids loved the helium bar.

“A rare find between Miami and Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We've past by this museum more times than I can count and finally decided to check it out Labor Day weekend. Thoroughly impressed with the exhibits, and the gift shop! Well-priced, informative, nice staff, lots of cool stuff in the gift shop including their own postcards. Think you know the history of diving? You might be surprised and learned something new; check it out!

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a great place for divers and non-divers to go to experience the history of diving (hence the name). Perfect for a rainy or windy day, or just for a day of sightseeing. Located in Islamorada next to Ziggy & Maddogs Restaurant.

“Better than I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I love to scuba dive, but I am not really into the gear or the history. Nevertheless, I found this museum very interesting and informative.
