Recently we received a press release from Douglas Mudd, Curator, Edward C. Rochette Money Museum, Colorado Springs, Colorado, regarding their new exhibit called “Treasures of the Deep: Galleons, Storms and Archaeology”. The exhibit, which opens June 5th, tells the story of the world’s greatest ship wrecks, the treasures they carried and the efforts to preserve the ship wreck sites. “This exhibit focuses not only the romance of sunken treasure, but also on the exciting process of rediscovering and recovering treasure from the ocean floor,” said Douglas Mudd.” A big part of the story is the science involved in rediscovering these wrecks which are time capsules that preserve the history of seafaring”. The exhibit is sponsored in part by Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC, an auctioneer and specialist in ship wreck coins.
The Money Museum hours are 10:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for seniors, students or military and free for children 12 and under.
