“Interesting even for the non diver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I visited this museum with my parents who are both keen divers. I found the history of diving very interesting and also scary.....shocking to realise how small a part scuba plays in the history of diving....you'll have to visit to find out more!!

Also great gift shop with some really unusual items.

We were also lucky to be able to attend a very interesting evening talk at the dive museum too - keep your eye out for information on their facebook site

“Great way to spend a couple hours”

loved seeing the old hard hat dive suites. Very interesting displays, people that worked there seem to be very passionate about the sport of diving. A must see for any diver.

This is a great stop for the diver or even someone thats never dunked their head under water. A massive collection of dive gear and artifacts. Well worth a look.

“Very cool from a divers POV”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Small lil museum but packed with diving information and a cute little gift shop. We had a blast walking around and learning about the history of diving plus some of the newer marvels that have come out in the last few years. Definitely recommend it for any divers!
