Staying in Vero Beach, this was definitely worth a visit. Super inexpensive and lots of artifacts from the 1715 shipwrecked fleet. We watched the video (1/2 hour?), and it was entertaining/informative. The museum itself is fairly small, with lots of artifacts, but not necessarily what...More

When you see their displays of what has been found along this beach and the shallow water just off the shore you will be heading off to buy a metal detector of your own

This museum has a synopsis of the 1715 Spanish sinking of their gold/silver fleet by a major hurricane. Artifacts are representative of on going recoveries offshore. Perfect for those not entirely familiar with this disaster. Describes how the survivors coped and their recovery attempts at...More

For the $2 admission, you really can't beat it. Pretty cool to see recovered treasures found just offshore! *Note* Don't miss the boardwalk off the back, we almost walked past the door. Great view of the beach.

The history and artifacts from the 1715 shipwrecks are exhibited in well maintained cabinets. Can also see the beach area where the 1000 survivors had to camp until being rescued. Easy to see why this is called the "Gold Coast". Sorry, no gold coins on...More

Unlike other treasure museums, this one adds information about the native peoples and their interaction with the shipwrecked crew of the 1715 plate fleet. Very intersting stuff.

Great historical information. However the place needs an update! People are not the friendliest either. It covers the Spanish fleet of ships that went down in a hurricane in 1715.

If you're looking for pieces of eight you've come to the wrong place. Interesting films and the location-right in the middle of the Treasure Coast--gets you thinking you can walk outside on the beach and find some gold nuggest.

This little museum is the perfect place to start to understand the history of Florida's "Treasure Coast." Eleven, perhaps 12, ships were sunk in 1715. Survivors camped on the museum site as salvage operations began. Maps and artifacts chronicle the history of the ships, their...More
