  • This place was filled with pirate booty and kisses mean that in the maritime sense and not the hip-hop sense. It was fascinating to see all the gold, silver and relics just laying around the on the bottom of the sea. I only wish I could have found some of my own. Either way it was awesome to see. There's even a spot where you can lift and hold a gold bar. The security guy with the tattoos on his head isn't a fan of trying to open the portal... You've been warned
  • Very cool. Tons of information about the man himself, and a number of shipwrecks. Huge collection of artifacts. And you can buy a piece for yourself! If you're in the Sebastian area, definitely check this out!
  • Fun place to visit if you love treasure! Great little gift shop that sells authentic treasure and artifacts.
  • Great video and displays. Made me want to hint treasure.
  • Great place to bring your little treasure hunters! It took us about an hour to walk through. My boys as well as myself had a fun time learning.
