With shipwrecks, the first thing that comes to mind is finding treasure. At the museum, you will discover multiple treasures that were lost at sea dating back from the 1600s all the way to war efforts of World War II. See a variety of coins, silver, and more from the shipwrecks of the SS Republic, SS Gairsoppa, and the Tortugas. Finding treasure on the ships gives an insight to what the ships were carrying when they sunk and a look at the currency from the past.
History is best explored through the objects that saw its events. At the Shipwrecked Treasure Museum, artifacts tell the stories of these ships. Uncover the mysteries of these events through unique objects from bottles to ancient astrolabes and more. All artifacts are 100% genuine. Each item was uprooted from three different shipwrecks, the USS Republic, the Tortugas, and the SS Gairsoppa. Some of the artifacts were also found from sites with no related shipwreck. With a visit to this museum, you can discover the stories of the past through these one-of-a-kind artifacts!
Museums are a lot more fun when you can participate in the history. This museum has many interactive exhibits that are great for visitors of all ages. Many of the exhibits are located inside of Pirates Lair, although there is truly something to interact with at every turn.
