Sebastian Fishing Museum

The Sebastian Fishing Museum is devoted to the rich cultural history of Sebastian's fishing industry. The lives and history of the people who lived in Sebastian were interwoven with fishing and the Indian River Lagoon. The museum commemorates three of Sebastian's early families that operated fish houses: Sembler, Smith, and Judah. Inside you will find a replica of an original fish house and dock. A homemade fishing boat, nets, fishing gear, and photos of fishing in the lagoon are also on display.

The Sebastian Fishing Museum is located on the south side of Sebastian Inlet State Park, 9700 S. State Road A1A Melbourne Beach, Florida 32951. The museum is open 7 days a week, from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., except major holidays (Christmas, New Years, and Thanksgiving Day). There are no additional fees for the Fishing Museum beyond normal park entry fees.
