The main focus of the museum is the treasure hunts and wreck diving that took place in Key West in the 1800s. During this time, the region was an important port for trade with the Caribbean and Central America. However, due to the dangerous waters and shallows, many shipwrecks occurred, losing valuable cargo and treasures.

At the Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum, visitors can immerse themselves in the world of treasure hunting. The museum features an interactive exhibit with lifelike depictions of treasure hunters and castaways, bringing to life the stories of past shipwrecks. There is also a variety of artifacts recovered from the wrecks including treasure coins, jewels, crockery and other items.

Visitors have the opportunity to take guided tours where they learn about the history of treasure hunting and wreck diving techniques. Live performances are also offered, with actors taking on the roles of historical figures and telling compelling stories about the shipwrecks.

The Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum also offers panoramic views of the surrounding Key West landscape from its observation tower. Visitors can enjoy the breathtaking views of the sea and the island.
