“Interesting and educational”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The videos regarding the recover of LaSalle's LaBelle ship from the Gulf were very interesting and educational. It has piqued our interest and we will be pursuing more information. The museum had a little bit of this and little bit of that covering maritime issues in the Rockport area over the years. We enjoyed ourself immensely.

“Great Way to Learn of the Area's History”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

This is a very well maintained museum showcasing area history. The exhibits and videos of De LaSalle's exploration are particularly interesting. If you're not familiar with exploration, fishing, and oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and Rockport area, this is the first place to visit, it will give you an appreciation for the area.
