The Man in the Sea Museum, founded in 1982, is visited by local residents, school children and thousands of tourists. Many good things have happened over the last thirty years, all of which created great benefits and corresponding requirements. The present 5,000 square foot museum with its comprehensive collections, sits on one acre of land on Panama City Beach Parkway (Highway 98).

The Man in the Sea Museum brings you treasures recovered from sunken ships dating from 1500, along with more recent commercial and naval equipment, vehicles, and habitats. Both kids and adults can climb through SEALAB I and other selected exhibits. Come see displays of early diving equipment and watch videos of showing how it was used!
