Discoveries from the Sea Shipwreck Museum was founded with the goal of recovering and preserving our maritime heritage. The shipwreck museum opened in July of 1995 and is the product of years of research and hard work. The museum does not receive state or federal grants and is funded only by owner contributions and public donations.
DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum is an ever-changing exhibit that expands and diversifies with the acquisitions of new artifacts as they are recovered. Our collection of shipwreck and recovered artifacts is one of the largest in the Mid-Atlantic and contains shipwreck artifacts both regional and worldwide. Our current location houses about 10,000 artifacts at all times, while the other 80% are rotated throughout museum exhibits around the world. Our long- range goal is to expand our facilities to exhibit the entire collection at one location.
Through your DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum visit, lecture, or program you will travel through a hands-on experience, which will enable you to shake hands with history. We look forward to sharing with you the information that we have learned!
