  • You want sponges? They have them, lol, along with a variety of average items for the home. The staff was friendly and the sponge histiry was interesting. 
  • Mostly just a store. Museum is closed. don't plan on going to see this as an attraction. Lots of seashore items like shells, etc. 
  • I liked the way this place, more of a store, had a free movie showing a bit of the history of the area. They huge variety of natural sponges available for purchase was amazing.

  • I like this place through out the town their is wonderful shop and great food. The Spongorama has to be your first stop when you get into town. Price are very reasonable. You will learn about sponges in 10 minutes than you ever knew
  • So many sponges but this place could use a good scrubbing... if it was cleaned up a bit this could be a nice little attraction. I thought the museum was interesting but it looked neglected. I got a bag of little sponges for craft projects at a fair price, so I left happy.
  • They are very keen at selling their sponges. There was something for every price range. We left happy. We also went in the boat tour to an island to collect shells! Very nice. I'd recommend it.
  • We visited this sponge factory which is really interesting and has some great items showing how they gather the sponges. Its well worth the trip to Tarpon Springs to see all the boats and visit some of the Greek restaurants.
  • We've been there a few minutes ago, watching the free movie. Before entering the museum, we wanted to browse the docks and come back afterwards (and buy some souvenirs of course) when we came back, that old short lady with black hair snarled at us, she was very unfriendly and told us, we should have gone into the museum after watching the movie. So we left. Why buy from someone, who has no idea of customer friendly service?
