The displays lacked specific time frames. You just meandered around. It would have been helpful to have more taped explain actions of what was there. Not worth $6.

Definitely not my idea of interesting. Not worth time and fee. Rockport is an interesting water front town. I enjoyed walking along the docks talking to fishermen and locals

Self guided tour is worth the fee and time should you be interested in history, equipment, and events related to our maritime past.

Really enjoyed all of the Maritime things at this museum. I saw several really cool boats, fishing poles and lures. Also several flags and some historic films.

You don't want to miss this Rockport treasure. Minimal entrance fee. Great for families to tour the Maritime history of the state of Texas.
