This museum is small but very informative. They run a 20 video loop that explains why the area is considered the Treasure Coast. It also tells the story of the sunken Spanish fleet. Artifacts are quite interesting.

This was a very nice treasure museum. There are examples of the gold they dug up from the Atocha, and a nice film to watch.
