I visited here and was impressed. I learned alot in this place. It is one of those places where you leave with more than you walked in with. An appreciation of not just the time and energy it took to get things done in the old days but an appreciation of how far we have come.

I enjoy quirky museums and this one was in an even quirkier location being the Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. I had to stop by. The museum is temporarily housed in this location because the new museum is still being built. It is part shop and part museum. There are a few interesting things to see. The fresnel lens from a...

We visited this museum which is temporarily housed in the mall. It has some beautiful art for sale and some good displays. We are going to visit the new museum when they get moved in May. We are keeping our eye on it. But if the sample we saw along with the video we watched are indications of their new... More

I learned a lot about the boating industry and what hard work the seafood industry goes through to put that great seafood on our tables

This place is tucked away in the Edgewater Mall, not somewhere you would expect to find a museum. I do not think they do it justice. There is an interesting film on a rolling loop which is worth a look for the old photos of Biloxi which we found very interesting but not really much else

We went here to learn more about our vacation area. I think it is a temporary location in the Edgewater Mall and it is not marketed well. You just come across it near Dillard's. it has some interesting exhibits but could be much better. There is a rolling video to watch giving the history of Biloxi which is very interesting... More

I think this is run through the maritime seafood museum; it goes out of the Biloxi small craft harbor, near the McElroys restaurant. It was a fun and educational trip; we learned alot about shrimp and shrimping industry and as a bonus we saw dolphins during the trip in the sound, just outside the harbor! Net caught a small ray,...
