MEL FISHER MUSEUM

The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum is home to a large collection of materials recovered from the Spanish galleons Nuestra Señora de Atocha and Santa Margarita of 1622. On September 4, 1622, 28 ships left Havana, Cuba, bound for Spain. With them was carried the wealth of an empire. The following day, the fleet found itself being overtaken by a hurricane as it entered the Florida straits. These vessels lay broken on the ocean floor, scattered from the Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas. In them were the treasures of the Americas, and the untold stories of scores of Spanish sailors, soldiers, noblemen, and clergy.
