Located on the spot that the survivors of the 1715 fleet disaster came ashore, the McLarty Museum lets you go back in time and get as much, or as little, history of the Spanish search for riches in the "new world" as interests you. It has a rather dated, but still relevant, info tape about the search to recover the... More

We brought several norther family members to McLarty when they visited us here. The film, although dated, really tells the story of treasure andj of those who found it.

Love this museum. Lots of historical facts and beautiful pieces they have discovered from the ship wreaks. I highly recommend for all newbies in the area. It will totally anchor you to our community. The price is well worth it.

This museum is one of two that is near the site of part of the 1715 treasure wreck. It is part of the State Park and there is an excellent set of displays and a movie that is about 20 minutes. Outside you can walk over and see the flora that survivors encountered and view the ocean on a small... More

Went last year..... paid the fee that was very high for Faux displays that didn't even seam to try to be somewhat realistic. Don't go unless you want a good laugh at how cheap and fake the whole Museum was. Tourists Trap and laugh 😂 Palace

My wife and I were driving Florida Highway A1A and discovered McLarty Treasure Museum. For a $2 admission charge per person you will learn some history, watch a 45 minute video on sunken treasure off the coast of Sebastian, and walk a boardway to a great view overlooking where millions of dollars of sunken treasure has been discovered.

This small museum has a big tale to tell. In 1715 ten Spanish ships carrying the Queens jewels, gold and silver sank off the coast of FL. The great story is that doubloons and precious stones have been washing to shore since then and treasure hunters have found the sunken ships and are continuing to salvage the riches. The museum...

Now I know why it is called the Treasure Coast. A lot of information in this small place. For a small fee, it is worth the visit. I love taking my out of town visitors here.

Wonderful little Museum to see the local gold and silver that was found around the Treasure Coast just off the coast. You'll see a short film about the hunters and what they found, its a great day out for everyone. You'll be amased at what was found. Have been to the Museum many, many times and never get tired of...

Who doesn't love treasure? Sunken ships and pirate tales? The McLarty treasure museum is the site of the 1715 Spanish plate fleet survivors & salvage camp. The 45 minute video is on a continuous loop so you may enter end exit at anytime. It is informative with excellent background information and personal testimony. The video is well worn, fuzzy shown... More
