The History of Diving Museum tells the international story of man's quest to explore under the sea. The Museum's vast collection spans 4000 years of diving history - from the earliest breath-hold divers to modern atmospheric diving armor. Something for everyone: family (and pet) friendly with many interactive exhibits.
The History of Diving Museum's exhibits include a timeline of diving history, a treasure room, a gallery dedicated to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Commercial Diving, Deep-Diving in the Abyss, the Parade of Nations (featuring diving helmets from every country that has ever produced one)and much more.
