Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Museum

This museum showcases treasures from 17th- and 18th-century European and English shipwrecks discovered in the waters around Key West. Artifacts include navigational instruments, armaments, silver and gold ingots, cannons and shackles from slave ships; there are also exhibits detailing Caribbean piracy during that time period. It’s named after Mel Fisher, the discoverer of the Nuestra Señora de Atocha wreck, and many of the ancient Spanish ship’s contents are on display in the museum.
