  • Found this museum by accident. I was driving through Panama City and saw the Sealab Sub and I had to stop. The Man in the Sea Museum is very small but very enjoyable. Plan on spending about 2hrs there...  more »

  • This place is where my dad would take us when we would come down on vacation when i was little, and it still awesome!!!! And they have two pokestops and a gym!?!?!?! Dude.... it's probably the best place to be on the beach.... just don't go inside the subs during the heat of the day... trust me on this. But definitely visit. You'll be glad you did :) Thank you, Museum of the Man in the Sea, for a ton of happy childhood memories :)
  • Highly recommend this museum. Debora gave us the tour and she is VERY informative and was great with the kids
  • My grandpa and I went to this museum during spring break just to see what it was about and we ended up being blown away! They had endless articles and artifacts from diving, most of it was interactive also so you could touch it. We even got a tour of a submarine from a nice lady that worked there! Definitely stop by!
  • Lots of interesting equipment. Needs to be remodeled. Feels kind of like an old military surplus store for divers. Super friendly staff.
  • It was fun. Ots a hands on kind of place.
