More than 500 authentic artifacts and treasures recovered from shipwreck sites around the world are on display at Branson’s newest interactive museum attraction, Shipwrecked Treasure Museum. The exhibition features treasures from historically significant shipwrecks, including some items never before displayed to the public and notable artifacts as seen on National Geographic and Discovery Channel. Located across from Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen at Branson Landing, this interactive museum is designed to captivate everyone from history buffs and nautical enthusiasts to children who love pirates and leave every visitor fascinated by what they have learned.
Immerse yourself in the world of shipwrecks by learning to tie nautical knots, trying your hand at operating a robotic arm just like the ones used to recover lost treasure, experiencing the intense wind of a Category One hurricane, interacting with a shipwreck on the bottom of the sea, spotting possible shipwrecks on scans of the ocean floor, and more.
From the time capsule of everyday life in the Civil War era found aboard the SS Republic to the hoard of gold and silver bars discovered on the British WWII cargo ship SS Gairsoppa to the pirate-era pieces of eight found within the Spanish Galleon Tortugas, the museum invites guests to examine incredible items that date back as far as 30 B.C. Shipwrecked Treasure Museum highlights the fascinating process through which Odyssey Marine Exploration discovers and recovers the priceless treasures lost at sea.
Shipwrecked Treasure Museum Gift Shop offers souvenirs for all ages, from pirate hats and toys to one-of-a-kind authentic artifacts and rare coins that spent hundreds of years on the ocean floor.
