We were surprised at the size of this museum. It housed several full size boats with their history! Lots of history of the shrimping and fishing industry in the area. Video rooms with films of the hurricanes that have hit Biloxi.
We did not know much about the fishing industry and maritime history of this area. The displays answered many questions and delivered education. It was fascinating that shrimp were peeled by hand until the 1970's. Well worth the visit.

So many items related to boating of all kinds, the seafood industry and it's evolution. Viewed the films on Hurricanes Camille and Katrina and they were very interesting.
This is a "don't miss" attraction!
The best part of this interesting museum is the continuous running of a very informational movie about hurricane Katrina.
There is also great information about the oyster industry and shrimping in the region.
