History of Diving Museum in Islamorada

Florida Oldsocol Camper on an road-trip 
We love adventure!!!

Florida Oldscool Campers visits the History of Diving Museum in Islamorada, Floirda.

Dixie has always been fascinated with 
Jacques Cousteau, 
and Mike has joined 
her in the world of 
scuba diving. 
In fact this trip will be 
Mike's first
 diving experience 
in the Florida keys, 
so what is better to
and get us 
into the mood then this 
fantastic museum!
The History of Diving Museum
82990 Overseas Highway
Islamorada, Florida 33036
Open Daily 10-5

With a low admission price of $12, our expectations were low... but boy were we surprised! 

We went slow and took our time, spending about hour and half. The exhibits are very well thought out with unique and rare pieces of dive gear along with history of diving. It was very educational and very well put together.  This is the "Real Deal". There is over 3,000 square feet of display space. They have a library onsite if you would like to do research, and the staff is very knowledgeable and educated.

I highly recommend if you are a diver or thinking about becoming a diver. But, you do not have to be one to enjoy and appreciate this museum. If you are traveling with kids, it has a great scavenger hunt with little toy scuba divers hidden throughout the museum, hands on exhibits, interactive things to read and learn about scuba diving all throughout history. 

It is camera friendly with
an amazing collection of
historical diving artifacts.
It is truly amazing to see
the amount of artifacts this
couple accumulated over
30 years and the history
that came with it.

else went faster. A great way to spend a small amount of time.

Very well educated and informative staff.
