Liked the museum, but of every single place I've been in Florida this is the only place I have been where I was made to wear a mask. I was ok with that but when I exited the museum to the area where workers were working and I heard them talking about the people who entered without a mask I kind of got upset. She said we were risk takers and she didn't want us there. Had I known that ahead of time I would not have even went. If they feel this way they should probably just fold up shop and close rather than talk about the customers paying for a tour in front of other customers.
Really neat museum. Lots of neat helmets t check out. I do think it was a little pricey for a family of 6 considering we took out time and was out in around an hour. All in all....great experience.
The Florida Keys History of Diving Museum is a must see for anyone who dives or appreciates diving and history. The collections are magnificent. There really is no place like it and is for all ages. It instills a sense of great sense of pride in being a Floridian because Florida, and the Keys in particular, played a critical role in the advancement and promotion of diving. Don’t miss this!
Very informative and a large display of diving equipment. I only spent about an hour here but I can see more avid enthusiasts spending hours here. The cost is $15/adult and you must wear a mask which they have for sale at $1 each.
I am an avid snorkeler and certified scuba diver and I found this Museum to be fascinating. The amount of work it took together all the information and suits is massive. It's just amazing How brave people were in the olden times to stick those huge heavy helmets on their head and walk on the ocean floor. To me it's mind-boggling. If you have any interest in the history of diving you should definitely go there!
