  • Now I know why it is called the Treasure Coast. A lot of information in this small place. For a small fee, it is worth the visit. I love taking my out of town visitors here. 
  • Wonderful little Museum to see the local gold and silver that was found around the Treasure Coast just off the coast. You'll see a short film about the hunters and what they found, its a great day out...  more »

  • Treasure. Pirates. Pieces of Eight. Cannon. And a nice boardwalk overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Great things to see with interesting facts. Over-all informative. Also, Mel Fisher's museum down the road is great as well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Could use more hands-on activities for the kids.
  • It answers so many questions about the areas early history. It is a very well done museum.
  • Interesting stop to pass some time. Documentary on the TV could have been clearer.
  • Boring. The Mel Fisher museum was so much better. The staff here was rude, and the museum itself was dull and did not have much
