I arrived on a Saturday, to discover that the museum is still trying to recover from damage caused by hurricane Michael. The exhibits outside, however, still had some plaques in place. The items, including the original Sealab, still made this visit worthwhile. Call ahead to...More
We checked hours of operation online. We went on a Tuesday. We looked at all of the outside displays which were interesting. Sign said they opened at 10. We were there until 10:30 and they had still not opened. Tried calling and answering machine said...More
Hubby and I enjoyed the artifacts and history and it was fun too see actual submarines. Teenager was not as impressed and was abhorred tjat sje didnt get a signal in the building. Closed for needed remodeling April 1 to the 10th I think.
We stopped in to check out the outside exhibits when the place was closed and went back a couple days later when it was open, and glad we did! The exhibits inside were very informative and cover the history of diving with plenty of example...More
The museum is dedicated to the experience and display of many remarkable diving rigs and deep dive systems used by the U.S. Navy and other entities as well. The refurbishment of the SEALAB 1 habitat is open for viewing and understanding of how men lived...More
We visited threes museum while on vacation. What a neat place. The teenagers even thought is was cool because they could touch things and try things out. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. Great place!
We went with our daughter that lives in PCB. She works at the Experimental Dive Unit at the Navy base so it was on our bucket list. It’s dated but considering it’s a nonprofit I could see funding can be an issue for a venue...More
Found this museum by accident. I was driving through Panama City and saw the Sealab Sub and I had to stop. The Man in the Sea Museum is very small but very enjoyable. Plan on spending about 2hrs there only cause of all the things...More
We had visited once a few years ago. It is now much better organized and labeled. They have also refurbished SeaLab I that is outside. It was a rusting hulk when we visited before. Now it has been restored and there is a guided tour...More

All underwater submersibles at the museum are inoperable. You may climb inside and look around in some of them, but unfortunately, they are not in water for you to take a ride. The museum is home to the United State's first underwater habitat--think international space station, but for the ocean. It is a one of a kind vessel only found here! You can go inside and see where 4 divers lived and worked for 11 days in 193 ft of water! We hope you will visit soon!
Has anybody gone to this? Is it any good? Can't find a specific website for it, just review sites that don't say much. Found 2 addresses: 17314 Back Beach Rd. and 17314 Panama City Beach Pkwy. Is this the same road? Once upon a time I thought I saw a picture of an underwater glass tunnel from which you could view the marine life. I'm certain it was a PCB website, but I can't find it now. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yes, Back Beach & PCB Parkway are the same road, also referred to as highway 98. The Muesum of Man in the Sea...I haven't been there but it looks pretty old and not exciting. There's rumors that they plan to move it, revamp it and make it into something worth visiting but at this time? I don't think so. And I don't know anything about the glass tunnel aquarium, the only one of those I have been in was in New Orleans! Maybe it's at Gulf World? We're going sometime soon, Sean gave me...More
