  • This fascinating museum is located on the second floor of Fenwick Island's Sea Shell City. Treasure and interesting artifacts from shipwrecks along the East Coast are on display along with background information. It's amazing to see what has been recovered from local beaches. The curator was eager to answer any questions and you could tell he was really proud of his exhibit. This small museum contains an intriguing and wide ranging collection of nautical objects and lost history. There're so many curiosities here so well featured from sunken ships that time stands still as you try to imagine when and how they were used. The store on the first floor is one of the better sea shell shops and has some nice souvenirs.⚓🌊🚢⛵🏖🐬🐚🦀😊.
  • Very cool display of shipwreck artifacts. It is not a large museum so if you are looking for something to occupy a lot of time with the kids this isn't it. However it is really interesting and the gentleman who runs it is very informative and helpful. It is also above a store with the biggest collection of sea shell goodies I have ever seen. Both are definitely worth a visit!
