This is a nice little Shipwreck Museum that welcomes all FREE! Don't miss this attraction when near Fenwick Island, DE.
A lifetime of searching has resulted in an amazing collection of relics from shipwrecks near and far.
If you are lucky, you might visit while founder and explorer, Dale W. Clifton, is present. A simple question from a visitor can result in an amazing history lesson. Mr.Clifton's amazing knowledge is the result of a lifetime of research and study. His first person accounts of the discovery of the Nuestra Senora de Atocha, will keep you spellbound for sure.
We were given the opportunity to hold a gold bar weighing about 2 pounds for probably the only time in our lives. This was a recent find by Mr. Clifton and the related stories were amazing to say the least. One member of our party was afforded the opportunity to become a true "Limey." He was guided through the process of how to taste rum recovered from a shipwreck in 1733.
Hopefully the future will present the right opportunity for Mr. Clifton to gather all of his valuable findings in one spot for all to enjoy. Only about 10% of his findings are on display here with the rest on loan to museums throught the world. This is a dream I hope comes true soon.
Be sure to visit this museum when in the area. I recommend you purchase a Guide to the Museum for $5 which makes the visit so much more meaningful. Don't miss this!
