Sebastian Fishing Museum has a great movie about local fishing and oystering history. The movie shows the "Good Old Days" when fish were a mainstay of the local economy.

First: you will need to pay admission to Sebastian state park - it is $8 and allows your entire car to go on both the north and south side parks including the jetty and tidal pool. The museum is great once inside the park and has many interesting fishing displays as well as local history. There is a short film... More

When visiting Sebastian Inlet State Park, you need to stop into the small, lovely Sebastian Fishing Museum - free with your paid admission to the park. It highlights the history of fishing in the Sebastian area, and contains fascinating displays, old gear, wonderful photos, and great informative panels to review throughout. There's also a nice small gift shop with a... More

This is a very quaint "Museum" telling how the Inlet was formed/made & kept in use. How the old fishermen fished back in the day. Pictures, Exhibits, 3 D exhibitions etc. Self guided tour. Educational. Free. Takes donations. Must pay entry fee to State Park (8.00 a car load) to get in.

Great little fishing museum with loads of photos, write-ups and a wonderful 30 minute video all about the early fishing families in Sebastian and the history of the fishing trade in this area. Having bought fish from the Judah family shop along Indian River Drive, it was interesting to hear and see some of their history portrayed at the museum.... More

This place is truly fascinating. Besides having antiquated equipment, the real joy is the enthusiasm and knowledge of the guide. He told a great story how New York City's workers built NY with protein from Sebastain fish around the turn of the century. A real inside knowledge you won't find in books. And of course, the countryside is all natural,... More

Enter and watch an approximately 30 film covering the fishing industry in this small town. Afterwords view the exhibits showing the details of how the industry evolved. This museum is in the State park at Sebastian inlet. Be sure to visit the park areas on each side of the inlet.

This museum in inside Sebastian Inlet State Park so it's worth a few minutes to stop in if you're in the park. There's no admission fee and it's attached to the gift shop. There were a lot volunteers there the day we stopped in and they enjoy talking to the visitors. There's a lot of photos and things to read... More
