Shipwreck Treasure Museum

Life and loss at sea. The lure of the search. The reveal of the find. The Shipwreck Treasure Museum is a place of peril and possibility, where a seabed full of salvaged stories waits to be explored…

Come exploring with us in a museum packed to the rafters. Seek out the objects that speak to you and discover the divers who first brought them all back to the surface.

Weave your way through 8,000 finds from over a hundred wrecks. See the only intact barrel of coins ever recovered from a wreck, feel the weight of a cannon ball and imagine the devastation it wrought in battle at sea.

From gold bullion bars, to ingots of copper, to the manillas used to sell people stolen from their homes and forced into slavery, there are stories of hardship and horror, hope and hair-raising feats of human instinct, each one a doorway into a world of imaginings.

So dive in with us, wander and wonder. Who knows what you might find?
