Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, Key West: 9 reviews and 16 photos
Mel Fisher is famous for his search for buried treasure amidst shipwrecks. After decades of searching, Mel finally hit it big in 1985 and discovered the remains of a ship which sank just off the coast of Key West in the 1600s. After a long legal battle, which I recall hearing about in vague detail, Mel Fisher was proclaimed the victor and received the spoils of this undersea buried treasure, valued in the hundreds of millions.
The maritime museum has exhibits and a video which explain the dangerous and costly process of recovering shipwrecks. Some of the finds from the 1985 shipwreck are on display here as well.
