The building itself is fun to visit. You can go out on the third floor deck and get a great view of the coast. The displays are very well done and the videos add depth. Kids would enjoy it as well.

If you go to Rockport take the time to visit the Texas Maritime Museum. It is worth the admission price and your time. Also check out the gift shop. We got a lighthouse poster for about a third of what the gift shops wanted for it and it helps the museum. Very friendly and helpful staff

It's really a great little museum. And it's location right at the harbor is wonderful. It's right at the beach so you can make a day of the museum, beach, art galleries, etc

WE always enjoy this little mueseum. The "GLobe" presentation is really so informative. It is one of few in the united states that have this display. The 3 d effect is really something to see. and its FREE!

Texas Maritime Museum is located in lovely Rockport Harbor and has a fabulous view from the 3rd floor outdoor observation deck. Entry fee is $8 for this small, but well organized museum that is chock full of history, artifacts, marine relics, and bygone coastal doodads. Be sure and sit through the complete educational film of the La Salle's La Belle... More

I enjoyed this museum thoroughly. It contains documents, information, a library, actual pieces of ships, models of ships and boats, a look out tower, and an outside area. A wealth of information and a great place to cool off in the summer.

Sad to say, this was just a "ho-hum," experience for us. Nothing to get very excited about. It was also a bit pricey for what is on display, too.

This museum is small and wonderfully organized. I especially enjoyed the lighthouse and lightboat feature. The gift shop has unique offerings. The view from the 3rd floor is something to appreciate.

Though small, this museum is very interesting and quaint. The staff are very friendly and willing to help. It was a nice diversion from the fishing/beach scene.

Loved visiting this place. It has so much information about the Texas history. The view on the 3rd floor is just amazing. If you're a history buff or just into Texas history - this is the place to go.
