Man in the Sea Museum

Today I visited the Man in the Sea Museum, a really cool museum of diving history. It’s located in Panama City Beach, Florida USA. Some of the equipment on display was familiar because I had helped write Navy documentation for the equipment, while working for defense contractors in the late 1980s. The museum entry fee was reasonable (I think it was US$5) and they gave a free huge poster about the history of diving.

The museum people were all very cool, and friendly. They almost encouraged you to handle the helmets/suits and other items on display. And they were very nice to allow me to bring in a ruler and sketchbook to make some more detailed measurements and examination of particular items on the Mk V.
