This is a great little museum dedicated to artifacts of diving, from free diving to bell diving, suit diving and very small amount of scuba. Loads of old Mark dive helmets we saw 50 to 60 years ago. Really informative and loads of old equipment...More

This is a GREAT museum! Cannot believe the amount of artifacts and the enormous knowledge gained from this visit. Very unassuming from the outside but well worth the time to stop. Even if you have never dove this takes you from thousands of years ago...More

Kids loved learning about the different diving gear. The diving helmet collection was fantastic. We spent about 1.5 hours touring this facility. There was a cute scavenger hunt for the kids to complete as well. Totally worth the price of admission.

This is a good stop to make. They go way back to the beginning. I like all the different diving helmets . A lot of history. I was surprised they didn't have anything about the show Seahunt or Flipper which were made in the Keys.

This is a well thought out museum that appeals to both divers and non-divers. They also have a "treasure hunt" for kids (and adults too). Easily good for 2 hours of wandering around.
