While exploring the area came across this little museum Talked with the staff for a while who were very knowledgeable. For 2.00 you can go into a large room and learn about the area and see some of the relics. Was interesting. There is also a small outside board walk.

We enjoyed the film, the deck overlooking the ocean and the gentleman at the desk was great. The display took about 15 mins to view and is 90% replicas. I guess I am unrealistic to think they would actually keep any treasure on display, but kinda hoped to see some actual stuff. Next time....

Not so many artifacts but the entrance fee is minimal and we did learn quite a bit about the Treasure Coast in short visit. They have a great observation deck as well.

Great little museum with a lot of information. We arrived just one hour before closing so had to speed up our walk around. Would have preferred to have spent a little more time there. The information about the shipwrecks was fascinating. Well worth the trip if you have a couple hours to spare.

This museum was a definite surprise as it offered a video of the search for the 1715 Spanish Plate Fleet that was in depth and very informative. I think it must last for a half an hour---could be a little less or a little more but it was one of the best videos I have seen at a museum! The... More

This is a very nice place to go for an interesting look into history when 11 ships went down off the coast of Sebastian Inlet in 1715. There are artifacts found nearby-from pieces of eight, to jewels, cups, and porcelain, a video to watch to tell you about what has happened there , and what you might find along the... More

I recommend viewing the short video before walking around the museum even if it in process. The artifacts on display from the 1715 Spanish Plate Fleet are priceless.

This museum is just south of Sebastian Inlet and can easily be enjoyed along with a visit to the inlet. Admission was just $2.00. The museum is on a site of the survivors camp of the 1715 disaster of the loss of the treasure fleet just off shore. It's not a big museum and has a limited number of artifacts,... More

Very small museum but packed with "treasures" from ship wrecks. Great film explaining everything that happened. I definitely recommend for an hour or two of fascinating viewing.
