Sealab 1.

Man in the Sea Museum

Man in the Sea Museum has been updated in the past year, with a grand re-opening in February 2021. SEALAB is now a walk-through attraction. We have new exhibits inside, and we have several events planned for the 40th anniversary of the Museum in March 2022.

We're glad that this unique under-the-sea attraction has expanded its collection for the sake of all us landlubbers.

This place is amazing! Very affordable, interesting, interactive, etc. One man's dream. It's like it's out of a Wes Anderson movie.

Museum of Man in the Sea

This is an interesting collection of undersea exploration devices from early diving bells to Sealab. Kind of a "burial ground" for old bathyspheres, etc.

[T J Sawyer, 07/20/2003]

The crown jewel of the collection -- much of which is displayed out in the parking lot -- is Sealab 1, the world's first underwater home.
