  • 0n a Starr bus trip. When we pulled into parking lot, my first thought was oh no, a seashell store!! What a surprise on the 2nd floor. All the artifacts and treasure were unbelievable! Such a wonderful and informative place!
  • Seashore trinkets and shells shells and more shells. Light houses, mermaids, sponges, crafting supplies.
  • Great place in a crappy location. This place is easy to miss because it's above a ginchy Sea Shell Shop. But the shipwreck exhibits are absolutely genuine, all locally sourced, well labeled and displayed, and interesting to kids as well as their parents. When I visited, Dale Clifton Jr, who is the proprietor and (with his dad) dove/sourced most of the items on display. He was working the room and answering all the kids' questions. Highly recommend!
  • This is an excellent museum. It has many artifacts from sunken vessels that are well displayed and have factual information about them. I had a wonderful time there. This is a hidden treasure on Fenwick Island. Also the museum is FREE!!!
  • Small but interesting, did not hold the attention of my 3 boys ages 6, 9, and 11.
