I didn't expect this museum to be much, but what a nice surprise. Anyone that enjoys learning about local history will enjoy spending time here. There were plenty exhibits and artifacts with full descriptions. From the top observation deck you get nice views of the area.

This is a decent little museum. There's not much to do on land in Rockport, so if you have some time to kill, it's not a bad option. Let me emphasize that it's very small, and there's really not much to it. It's set in a sort of lighthouse, and you can go up to the top, so that's pretty... More

The museum is small but has enough exhibits to spend a fair amount of time enjoying the history of the area. They have exhibits about coastal industries, and sport fishing, among other topics. There are interactives for kids and they actually have a boat yard to explore. It's a nice attraction.

Spend the time in Rockport to visit the museum. They have done a nice job. Interactive for children. Spend time outside and see the different boats.

If you find yourself in Rockport (TX) make time to visit the Texas Maritime Museum. The museum’s permanent exhibits focus on maritime history, boat and ship building, commercial and sports fishing, as well as modern-day oil and gas exploration. The second floor also has an incredible display of artwork devoted to Texas lighthouses. And the third floor is actually an... More

Not only did I attend the festival, I was a vendor participant and paid a hefty booth fee. Unfortunately, the Museum board or whomever is in charge of this event, does not adequately advertise the vendors who pay to be there. A large number of wines are offered for a range of prices to festival participants.

Went to the museum on a Saturday afternoon and explored the different levels. Half was ship related, the other half was oil related maritime. There were only one other couple in the museum at the same time as us so it was easy to see the exhibitions. Don't forget to step outside on the 3rd floor observation deck while there... More

Wow, they have weekly educational programs where you can bring your own lunch and learn about different Marine topics. Wonderful! I even found a tacklebox that had ties to my distant family in Wisconsin! Who knew?
