Gold and Silver in the waters
Aug 2021 • Couples
Great afternoon out with some history to boot. A real hidden Gem on A1A in Sebastian and a bargain price entry fee. Parking area is small, but there is an overflow available. To get the history watch the 45 min presentation about the 1715 Plata fleet as it adds valuable information, then walk through the small museum and them go out to the beach overlook. Unfortunately Mel Fisher and State of Florida have rights to anything found.

The people at this museum are treasures, as well!

Visited the McLarty Treasure Museum in the Sebastian Inlet State Park today. Well worth the time.

We were very fortunate to visit when the reefs are visible from the shore during low tide. It only happens infrequently, relative to the phases of the moon.

There’s a great movie about the history of the area, the millions of $$ worth of treasure that have already been found, many cool artifacts, plus the people who staff this museum are the most interesting we’ve encountered yet! Really knowledgeable and fun. Hidden gem, for sure.

The treasures that are yet to be found are calling my name. And now I need a metal detector and and a scuba suit.

Learning FL history
Aug 2021
My sister and I learned a lot about the treasure that has been found off the FL coast. There's a video that explains how this came about, for $2 per person. We also enjoyed the observation deck of the beach area where the ship wreck occurred. They said you could possibly see the ship wreck (not really sure how), but it was very windy and choppy on the water. There's no beach access since it's still an active archeological site. We still enjoyed and learned a lot about some Florida history.

Wonderful experience!

We spent a wonderful few hours exploring this little museum on 07/30/2021. This was honestly the most interesting and engaging museum I can ever remember visiting, and that is solely because of the amazing volunteers who spend their time engaging with visitors. We learned SO much about the shipwreck of 1715, how the survivors managed to live here until they were eventually rescued, and all about the fortunes that were lost - and have been discovered again - in the sea. Then the volunteer gentlemen who were outside on the observation deck pointed out which boats in front of the museum were actually diving for treasure at that very moment! The volunteers who work here bring this whole place to life, they are extremely knowledgeable and excited to share the artifacts and the history behind each item. There is true “treasure fever” among everyone here…and now I understand why! What an unexpected but delightful place to spend a few hours with your family, making new friends!

Treasure Fever Revived
Feb 2021 • Couples
A great spot to visit and learn about what made this the gold coast. good video to lay the broad background. Would love to see more of the treasure that was recovered, a better timeline and story in the museum for Kip Wagner and the real eight folks. And something to keep kids engaged, maybe virtual reality of the difficult dive conditions these guys braved.Really enjoyed talking with Cory. His enthusiasm is infectious.
