The treasure from the Nuestra Señora de Atocha is calculated to be worth more than $4 million. Visitors to the museum enjoy a 15-minute movie about the ship, search, and recovery of the treasure. Following the movie, they can see and touch actual artifacts from the shipwreck. Finally, we have a gift shop full of wonderful souvenirs related to the Atocha.
The museum is located in the Stephen J. Betze Library on the campus of Delaware Technical Community College in Georgetown.
To be consistent with Governor Carney’s recommendations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum is closed. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we do our best to limit the potential for community spread of COVID-19. The museum staff looks forward to serving the community again soon.
