The Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, displaying, and interpreting artifacts, antiques, books, documents, photographs, and oral history relative to the History of Diving. We tell the international story of man’s attempts to explore, understand, and venture under the sea. We also celebrate the special role that South Florida and the Florida Keys played in this story.
At 320 Simonton Street, enter the serene setting of Simonton Court Historic Inn & Cottages and you'll be greeted by fragrant tropical flowers blooming beneath gently swaying palms. The Inn was once a cigar factory where craftsmen hand rolled some of the world's most famous cigars. A brick walkway, once a lane, runs past our sparkling pools and historic cottages built in 1880 as the homes of cigar factory workers.
This engaging new attraction encapsulates what living in the “Old Keys” was really like through a series of fascinating exhibits that include the infamous Labor Day Hurricane of 1935.
