Very Informative. Only $6 fee for seniors. Nice building near the waterfront and exhibits very well done. Learn about the Texas Navy and early exploration on the Gulf Coast. Well worth the 2-3 hours we spent here.

Nice little museum detailing the history of Rockport. I was surprised to learn that Rockport got its start as a meat packing town. Also found that a lot of my freshwater lures can be used for salt water fishing (for trout). Good way to spend...More

This was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon in Rockport. The museum had a couple of informative films and a library full of books. The rich history of this area was well organized and well displayed. The volunteers do a great job.

We stopped by Rockport and went into this museum just to look around. A good place for average person to learn a few things about Texas maritime history. Do go to the top floor for picture opportunities.
