Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Society Museum
The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum is the only fully accredited museum in the Florida Keys? That means we're more than just an exciting adventure story. We're also a nationally recognized research and archaeology institution. Yes, we have amazing treasure in our 1622 Fleet exhibit of the Spanish galleons discovered by Mel Fisher and his crew, and we have so much more! Our thought provoking Slave Ship and Key West African Cemetery exhibits provide a stark look into the transatlantic slave trade and Key West's unique role in it. Learn about Spanish Coins in the New World, the Real Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Science of Shipwrecks. You can even take a lab tour and see how history is revealed through conservation every day! Make plans to visit. We're open seven days a week.
