“Fascinating collection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

I was ambivalent about visiting and was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised by the extensive collection of dive helmets and gear. There are videos to watch, lighted, informative presentations and a couple of hands on activities. The price was $12 per person, which seems a little steep, but in all fairness, the climate control required for the collection must be daunting. If you are a diver, it's a fascinating look at the history.

“Best Museum I have ever visited!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

It is a very cool place for anyone interested in diving. I personally enjoyed the collection of diving helmets from all over the world. The entire visit was extremely informative, educational, and entertaining! The exhibits had a wonderful flow to them and I recommend this place to any diver wholeheartedly.

“An unexpected gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Having found our original destination closed, we stopped here more for something to do than any particular interest. It's fascinating. Loads to look at, information covered in an engaging and interesting way, lots of artefacts and things to play with.

“If you are a Diver don't pass up on this....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

It is not all that expensive 12 bucks, and the history contained within is a fascinating look at man’s attempts to explore the ocean. As a diver for the past thirty years it took me way back. I loved all the helmets from around the world and the super deep dive suits. I always wondered what you would do if you in one of those suits and down about 100 feet and you got a nose itch. Lots to see here the owner has obviously put a lot of love into this. Take your time and feel the history and courage that surrounds you. I will go back again.
