This museum exceeded my expectations, because of the organization of the artifacts and information about the artifacts. I learned a great deal about the history of diving, which goes back 5,000 years! This is a must-see for all ages.

Thanks for the great review Patti! It is crazy to think how long people have been trying to explore under the sea.

We enjoyed the museum and both my daughter's loved the scavenger hunt. We all had fun looking for the little diver guy throughout the museum. It was a lot more than i expected and very interesting.

Those little divers can be very sneaky! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed the Museum. The scavenger get switched up every so often, so you will have to come back again!

The name doesn't sound like much, but inside is a lovingly curated selection from the history of diving. The ingenuity of the pioneers, and their courage to venture into the unknown, is amazing. Lots of curious items to see.

And still very interesting for non-divers. It isn't the Nation Air & Space Museum but it is an interesting trip through the early attempts at getting underwater and staying there for a while and into the future. I know. My brother and I tried it...More

We stopped by here one day and took the tour. It was nice. My wife and I both enjoyed it. I didn't take a long time and got to see a lot of stuff for diving.

Thank you for stopping by the Museum and visiting us. It's amazing to see how much history is placed in 3,000 sq feet!

We didn't expect much but found this museum very interesting and fun. It was well worth the $12 admission. The exhibits were extensive and well-planned. It was a very enjoyable way to beat the FL heat!

A small place but has a lot of underwater diver's original suits and good stuff if you're interested in history of diving gears and books, gifts. Good for children and adults.
