  • Extremely boring and not much in the way of excitement. Costs too much to get in for such little enjoyment. I can't speak for people who are avid fisherman, but this place did not catch my interest and felt like a waste of money.
  • Having grown up coming to Destin several times a summer, I rea enjoyed visiting the Museum. When I first started going to Destin in the late fifty's, it was, in fact, a sleeply little fishing village. What it has evolved to doesn't please me a lot, however, your museum brings back pleasant and cherished memories. Thanks
  • Nice little museum, friendly staff
  • The Destin Fishing Museum has so many great artifacts with a great story behind everyone. The staff is extremely polite and very friendly. I enjoy my stay everytime I visit.
