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?

Along with being the best place for souvenirs, the Museum is a treasure for the State of Texas, being the official maritime museum for the state. The exhibits are wonderful

Wouldn't suggest driving here to just see the museum but a nice place to see if you are in the area. A $6 entry fee.
