  • The Treasures of the Sea Museum at Delaware Tech, 18800 Seashore Highway, is celebrating its 25th anniversary by offering free admission from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 20.
    Attendees will see the collection of Spanish treasures from the 17th century shipwreck of the Nuestra Seniora de Atocha. The Atocha went down in a hurricane Sept. 6, 1622 off the Florida coast. Hunter Mel Fisher recovered the shipwreck's treasure with the help of investors. The treasure is calculated to be worth more than $4 million.
    Visitors to the museum will watch a 15-minute movie about the ship, search, and recovery of the treasure.
    The museum is located in the Stephen J. Betze Library on the campus of Delaware Technical Community College. The GPS address is 21199 College Drive, Georgetown.
