Finally visited with my grand daughter after passing by many times. I found it very interesting. I now live here on the Treasure Coast and really had not realized the significance of the name. Very good exhibits, and a film is included. The

I take most of the people who come to visit me to Mel Fisher's museum. The story of the sunken Treasure fleet is fascinating and for a nominal fee you get a detailed education on how the Treasure Coast got its' name.

We spent an interesting hour or so in the museum. There is a short movie clip that introduces you to some of the treasure hunting operations. The rest of the museum is full of artifacts that were discovered right offshore. Pretty fascinating. Cheap.

Although this is a small museum we found many beautiful and historical "treasures" from many of the unfortunate Spanish galleons that were shipwrecked in the Florida waters so many years ago. The price is nominal, we actually found a good deal on Groupon. The museum...More
