In the wake of Hurricane Katrina the old museum was nothing but rubble. A new museum has now opened in the same location. Entrance fee is about $5 to $10 per person but I think it's worth the price of admission. The attractive new building is 3 stories tall but is ADA compliant with an elevator taking you to all...

The new Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum is simply spectacular. It just reopened in a new building at the redeveloped Point Cadet by the Golden Nugget right off the bridge to Ocean Springs. The collection of boats and other artifacts are great. It is an absolute must see on the Gulf Coast. There is also a splash pad for the... More

It's closed right now for renovations. Nice location when it's up and running. The review requires me to say more -- so, it's behind the Palace Casino.

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 are keeping our eye on it. But if the sample we saw along with the video we watched are indications of their new... More
