History of Diving Museum
Deep-sea diving is a way of life in the Keys, so much so that there's an entire museum dedicated to its history. But visitors don't have to have ever strapped on a wetsuit or breathing apparatus to find something of interest here. In a way, it's more of a history museum that documents mankind's longtime love affair with the sea. Though the museum opened in 2005, its collection is the result of more than 40 years of personal collecting. Today, it has one of the world's largest collections of diving helmets, armored suits, diving accessories, photographs, books, films, and another memorabilia from more than 30 countries.
