If you came to the beach or to fish. A great treat for insight into local history, including natural history and that of native Karankawa

As the other reviewers have said, the museum was very interesting. This was in large part due to the director George Ann who spent time with us telling us about the area and some of the artifacts in the museum. We had come here to see some of the La Salle exhibit, but learned a lot more about the former inhabitants of the area such as the Karankawa Indians and those living in Indianola. We hope that they will be able to build a larger building as there is apparently much more to see that is being stored.

Was given a tour of the museum by a very informed lady on local history of this area. A large collection of objects from the past were explained to me by the tour guide and I was very impressed by her knowledge. Port LaVaca is a very cute town in Texas and very close to the water. There are a lot of places to go fishing at little or no cost.

This is a small museum but because of the lady who was running the museum this day was great. We did not expect a tour. She took her time and followed us through the museum with a wealth of information about each display and the importance to the area. Certainly worth the time.
Thank You

The museum was a nice find. It had many historical items on display including the lighthouse light lens, a forensic facial reproduction of an indigenous local woman and shipwreck items. The docent was very formative and nice. There was not an admission charge but I did drop a monetary donation in the the donation box. While in the local area, stop by.
