“Impressive!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

If you are into history, you should visit this place. It talks about the history of light house, Port Isabel and surrounding areas. It is worth a visit.

“Quite surprised”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

It was a chilly rainy afternoon so the wife and I visited the museum. For such a small venue, it was put together rather nicely and had a wealth of information about the entire South Padre area.

Reviewed November 6, 2012

I loe lighthouses and the history behind them. You cn find it here. The actual museum isn't open much since I beleive it is mainly volunteered operated however you can still good a good feel for Lighthouse's history for it building to now.
