On my recent vacation, I ventured to my normal summer stomping ground in Seaside, Florida. As part of my trip I drifted a little to the west, to Destin, Florida, to ensure that my wife didn’t break the bank at the Coach Factory in the Silver Sands Factory Stores outlet mall. (Thanks to Spencer Court for the Coach Factory information…my wife is pleased to know that my readers are looking out for her!) I also made my way to the east, to Panama City Beach, Florida, to check out the Man in the Sea Museum. It was a quaint museum–great collection!
I saw a review on TripAdvisor.com that someone left stating, “Can’t comment on whether the museum is worth stopping for, but it definitely is worth a drive-by… lots of neat stuff to see!”
To this I can only say, “Oh my God–you missed out! I mean, maybe after work a bunch of us can go drive by Wrigley Field. Let’s just drive by it…I don’t want to actually go to a game.”
That doesn’t even make sense.
Yes, the museum doesn’t look like much from the outside, but you would be surprised by all the historical stuff that they “creatively placed” (crammed) into the space they do have. The museum’s main attractions are part of an outside exhibit, so space really isn’t an issue. The most significant piece of the museum in the SeaLab I. SeaLab I was an experimental, underwater living habitat. For those of you interested in the SeaLab I, tomorrow’s post will include the history and happenings of SeaLab I.
