McLarty Treasure Museum reviews
A nice surprise on a cold and windy day.. Interesting and the staff knew their stuff. Would recommend to all... especially kids to learn the history of the area! more »
We stopped by here just killing time one afternoon. Very cool little museum! My husband is fascinated by the idea of there being treasure off the FL coast so he was very into it! 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.
