  • We love finding unique , small museums. Staff was very friendly when entering. You will spend roughly about 1-1.5 hours. Thought the exhibits were curated very well and it would be an interesting...

  • Surprisingly excellent museum. Great for kids and adults, I recommend it as a must visit to friends going to the Keys. Displays of diving technology and history from the middle ages to the present. The exhibits are top notch and extensive. The simple exterior does not do the museum justice. If you are into history, ship wrecks, technology, ocean exploration, marine science, or just looking for a fun afternoon it is a must do in the middle keys for all ages.
  • This museum is awesome! We heard about the museum when researching things to do on our drive from Miami to Key West, and made sure to make time for it. The artifacts were interesting and I loved how the space was designed. Definitely one of the cooler quirky museums I've ever been to. Well worth a stop and worth the price.
