Excellent place to visit! Lots of information and treasure finds on the 11 ships lost in 1715. They provide a 45 minute video on the history of the shipwrecks and you can tour the building at your own pace. Very knowledgeable guides and super nice. Observation deck that overlooks the beach/ocean. Wheelchair accessible and seating provided throughout.
This is a very cool place to learn about the exploration and treasure of Spain! The staff there were super friendly and were excellent tour guides and told me everything about the artifacts in the exhibits. The outside portion was awesome as well! Definitely coming back in the summer!
