If you are interested in scuba diving history this is the place for you. Many different displays showing progression of the sport, so many you can easily spend a few hours reading all the information. Definitely a good stop

We drove up from Key West and were not disappointed. The Museum takes you on a journey through the history of diving from the first recorded dive to the present day equipment. You will find it interesting even if you are not a diver.

This was such a nice surprise. Their collection is impressive in an artistic sense, and the history is fascinating. The activities for kids occupied my tweens. Good stop!
