The Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, displaying, and interpreting artifacts, antiques, books, documents, photographs, and oral history relative to the History of Diving. We tell the international story of man's attempts to explore, understand, and venture under the sea. We also celebrate the special role that South Florida and the Florida Keys played in this story. The Florida Keys History of Diving Museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational institution focused on the Story of Man's Quest to Explore Under the Sea. The majority of the Museum's artifacts have been provided through the generous support of its founders, Drs. Joe and Sally Bauer, who hold one of the largest collection of historic diving equipment and research documents in the world.

If you dive, you should stop by. Be sure to get the coupon from one of the local books. It's about 9 dollars per person. You only need about an hour to go through the whole museum. It's worth a visit.

This is such a complete history of SCUBA. So cool all of the items on display. The museum is small, the price is reasonable, the people are great. It was very interesting. Every dive master we encountered loved this place also.

Chronological narrative and extensive artifacts of the progressive improvements in diving equipment, starting way back with the earliest diving bells. Enjoyed it!
