Highly recommended! Worth the few dollars it cost! A nice break from the sand and sun.

This museum is attempting to preserve artifacts from the history of diving. If they weren't, these items may have been piling up in salvage yards or even discarded. For those interested in deep sea diving as a career or hobby, or those interested in the science and adventure aspect of the development of saturation diving, this is worth the trip to Panama City Beach. It also showcases the heroes whose efforts lacked the notice they deserved because the media was focused on the space program. Before going you may want to read "Sealab" by Ben Hellwarth, and "Sea Dwellers" by Bob Barth. You will certainly want to read them after touring the museum.

Very interesting and worth the entry fee - They have an abundance of old diving rigs on display inside & out. Very helpful staff. Well worth a visit if you're in to the historical side of diving or just inquisitive as to how it all started.
