Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits in this museum. Many artifacts, hands-on displays, and interesting information. The fee is an investment in knowledge and enjoyment. The staff was very friendly and could answer any question. This was time well spent.

As I enjoy history, I enjoyed all of the history and exhibits. The exhibits were very well laid out and provided information. There was nothing to dislike.

We visited here with our two kids and had a great time. Lots of interesting facts and history. The admission was super cheap and there was tons of exhibits and stuff to touch and see. Highly recommended for anyone who visits Rockport!

This museum is fabulous . Such detail and info about Coastal Bend history and the explorers who were vital to founding of Rockport.. Also Copano Bay and how it relates to Goliad history and the Mexican Army after The Alamo.

My husband and I enjoyed it and would have enjoyed it more without our two small kids! ;) The kids liked it but we were not able to stop and read things like we would have liked too. Nothing really held the kids interest for too long. It is an interesting museum but I would not suggest taking smaller children... More
