NileGuide Expert tip:
Excellent change of pace for your beach vacation.
Panama City Beach is home to the United States Navy's Diving and Salvage Training Center as well as excellent scuba diving, having both natural and man made reefs. With this kind of nautical history it is no wonder that Museum of Man in the Sea was erected to celebrate the history of diving. Museum of Man of the Sea is located away from the crowd of the beaches and is easy to find on Panama City Beach Parkway. The museum is dedicated to celebrating the early history of diving and houses a large collection of rare, authentic diving equipment, including SEALAB-1, a famous Navy diving vessel. The museum also has an array of visual exhibits that give the visitor a true feel for what early diving perils were like in comparison to the high tech SCUBA equipment available today. Parking is free and admission to Man of the Sea is only $5 for adults and admission is free for children under 7. This is a great place to stop in for a change of pace from your beach vacation.
