It's amazing what the pioneers of diving did for this field. I'm not sure I would have been brave enough to use some of that equipment! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to the Museum!

We had a few hours to kill and since all of us in the family are certified scuba divers, we decided to stop in. The exhibits were cool and we definitely learned more about the history to scuba diving!

A great way to spend a rainy afternoon or to learn about the history of diving. Packed with thousands of items of diving memorabilia. Interesting if you are a diver or not. Well worth a visit.
