My husband and his friend outvoted my wanting to go to the Audubon house....and I’m not going to forgive them. At $15 each to wander through 2 floors of artifacts, without any real explanations unless you wanted to get the audio tour as well, it...More

Anyone who is familiar with Mel Fisher's story MUST see this museum! To stand in the presence of artifacts that date back to the 1600's is awe-inspiring.

Good place to visit, lots of info on Mel Fishers treasure hunting and full of displays of treasure removed from the Gulfs floor. Visit the gift shop and treasures can be yours.

We went to the Mel Fisher museum in Sebastian and loved it! So we also had to check out this. It didn't disappoint. The history of the ships plus seeing the treasure is well worth the price if admission!

Great Museum with Focus on Mel Fisher's Shipwreck Finds. Little pricey for a small museum, but when you consider the amount of gold, silver, and precious jewels on display and the security required to protect them it is understandable. Wonderful displays especially the large amount...More

Hello. The audio tour is in English only. We do have native Spanish speakers on staff in the galleries who are willing to be of assistance.
