Palm Beach Maritime Museum, Palm Beach

3.5
#13 of 14 in Things to do in Palm Beach
The range of interactive displays, artifacts, and historical recreations at the Palm Beach Maritime Museum ensure that Florida's nautical history isn't stuck in the past. The nonprofit organization manages two waterfront properties tied directly to local maritime technology and the environment. At the Currie Park location enjoy a cup of coffee from the Cafe and view some of the exhibits or read a nautical book while relaxing in this peaceful setting. Then take a ferry that runs from Currie Park to Peanut Island where a historical former Coast Guard station and its ready-boat give a peek into the past of the famed institution. It's also here that guides lead visitors through the concrete halls of President John F. Kennedy's bomb shelter, a relic of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

  • It's very interesting if you enjoy boating. It has interesting things about old Palm Beach. I really enjoyed going to this museum.
  • Still a nice place to go to. Only negative is the amount of homeless people sleeping around the area. It makes you feel unsafe.
  • It wasn't opened. I certainly checked worktime. But, I just returned..Because, It locked.
