The Galleon Atocha
The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum is a 501 (c) (3) accredited, not-for-profit organization existing to research, interpret, and exhibit the maritime history of Florida and the Caribbean in ways that increase knowledge, enrich the spirit, and stimulate inquiry.

Plan a Visit / Parking


Metered parking as well as city and private parking lots are located near the museum. The lot closest to the museum is at the Margaritaville KW Resort & Marina (formerly the Westin Resort), on Front Street. Rates are independently established and are not under the museum’s control. 

The museum offers a bicycle rack in our courtyard.  Please lock your bike with a secure chain.  Bicycles must be removed from the rack by 5:30 p.m. to avoid being locked in when our gates close.  Scooters are treated as motorcycles under Florida law. The parking of scooters on sidewalks or in No Parking zones can result in parking violations or towing.

Free Shuttle - Ride The Duval Loop

Avoid the hassles of parking. The Free Duval Loop stops at the museum. It runs every 15 minutes 10am-midnight, every 30 minutes 6am-10am.
