The Message in a Bottle Museum

Welcome to The Message in a Bottle Museum Online

If you are curious about messages in bottles, but can’t get to Chad Pregracke’s message in a bottle museum exhibit featuring messages from American rivers, or to the far-flung, brick-and-mortar Turks and Caicos National Museum’s message in a bottle collection, then the Message in a Bottle Museum Online is the place for you!

There are two galleries here. The first features my and my family’s message in a bottle finds; the second features messages in bottles found by beachcombers around the world.

The caption for each message in a bottle includes a link to the full story behind the bottled note. These range from love stories to improbable “family reunions” and more.

As I find more messages in bottles and learn of more messages in bottles found by others, this message in a bottle museum will grow.

If you know any great message in a bottle stories you’d like to see here, drop me a line.
