     The DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum contains one of the largest collections of shipwreck and recovered artifacts
     in the Mid-Atlantic. The exhibits are constantly changing, with about 10,000 artifacts on display at any one time,
     allowing visitors the opportunity to “shake hands with history.” Artifacts date as far back as the 1500s and include
     such treasures as cannons, daggers, bottles of rum, gold chains (one 10-foot chain was once destined for the Queen
     of Spain), piles of gold coins, and place settings from the Titanic’s shipwrecked sister-ship, the R.M.S. Republic. Tours                              If you like this, you may also like . . .
