The museum is well arranged. It is worth the money to rent the audio tour for only $2. Don't miss the upstairs as well.

You can trace the history of the pirates and the Keys. Great artifacts and of course the treasures found. You can even purchase some at the end. Well Done

The museum is self-guided so that you can enjoy the exhibits at your own pace. You may choose an optional conservation lab tour on weekdays that runs from 25 minutes and up, based on questions and answers from participants.
Is the tour also in Spanish?
