This museum is dedicated to the memory of John W. Peck, Junior. Mr. Peck was an employee and close friend of Dick Wilgus – owner of Dive Toledo and this museum. Mr. Peck was a diving instructor and a commercial diver who was lost in an unfortunate diving accident while on a commercial dive.

 

The museum contains a large selection of diving equipment and supplies covering military, commercial and sport diving. This vintage equipment ranges from an 1942 Lionell brass compass made for the U. S. Navy to items produced in the mid-1980s.

Among the vast selection of regulators shown, there is a diverse range of the old double hose regulators.

The museum also boasts a good collection of books, magazines and catalogs of diving equipment from the early 1950s onward.
