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 untold story.
The Florida Keys History of Diving Museum is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational institution focused on the Story of Man’s Quest to Explore Under the Sea.
The Museum’s artifacts have been provided through the generous support of its founders, Drs. Joe and Sally Bauer, who hold one of the world’s largest collections of historic diving equipment and research documents.
