  • Don't miss the film of the treasure hunters and other great history sources including the museum staff. Well worth the stop.  more »
  • Lots of local knowledge. A real hidden treasure along the treasure Coast A1A for $2. Staff was just as nice as could be Not well marked ... keep your eyes peeled!!!!.  more »
  • Simple yet very effective. This is a good place to go and understand the treasure history of the area. They're quite a bit of displays and lots of information as to why it's called the Treasure Coast. And it's only two bucks to get in! One thing to keep in mind, this is geared for people who like history - more for teenagers and adults, not so much for children (unless they love treasure and pirate history).
  • For $2 its not a bad stop. The exhibits aren't extensive or detailed. They do have a couple of interesting pieces to see. The video they play which covers the ships history and the treasure search are a bit dated but still informative. Good for a 45 min stop.
