Great reviews for this little museum but we went today and it was closed. We were told they were hoping to reopen at another location. Perhaps next trip.

We enjoyed the visit. The museum is small, but with a nice collection of items brought up from ship wrecks. Worth the visit. Something to do for free!

Nice little museum with lots of shipwreck and dive related artifacts. I would suggest maybe 30 minutes and would interest most people, if you have kids who like pirates this is a good way to learn and see some genuine history

Found this museum by a happy accident. It was free and we spent about an hour inside. They take donations and were very nice.
