Dive into This Shipwreck-Themed Exhibit at the Johnson History Museum
Don’t miss the treasure-trove of educational fun at Shipwreck: Discovering Lost Treasures, the exciting exhibition now on display at the Johnson History Museum! This interesting overview of the Gulf’s lost treasures is presented by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County, with vivid photos and fascinating artifacts that make the in-depth stories of Palm Beach past and present come to life.
Since its identification by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León in 1513, the Gulf Stream current has been utilized by ships as a nautical highway. The current’s proximity to the Florida coast, the often-volatile Atlantic Ocean, and frequent hurricanes all contributed to an abundance of shipping disasters. Through the lens of several wrecks in Palm Beach County between 1660 and 1984, Shipwreck will explore the impact of these nautical disasters on people and places during various historic periods.
The vessels broken in the Gulf waters held not only gold and jewels, but other treasures—items prized by early pioneers. Come dive into compelling stories and traditional riches of shipwrecks while redefining your meaning of “treasure” at the Johnson History Museum!
Even though Glades Diamond Apartments in Belle Glade, Florida provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
