We had been going to Rockport for years and finally went to the this museum, which is across the street from the beach. Excellent displays and thorough write ups. You can spend an hour or spend the whole day.

This was a nice maritime museum with several nice exhibits. We especially liked the one about La Salle's sunken ship the La Belle. The first floor is largely about this amazing part of Texas history and the recent recovery of this artifact in the Matagorda...More

If you are in Rockport and have an hour or so, this museum is worth a visit. I particularly enjoyed the paintings of the lighthouses and the history behind each one.

Wanted something to do with some friends for an afternoon. Very nice museum, full of interesting martime artifacts and a brief overview by one of the volunteers. The view from the observation deck is worth the admission. Very well kept by the volunteers who run...More

Nice museum with a few cool maritime artifacts and local history. Bit of a walk from hotel. Rockport is not a very walkable town. Few sidewalks.
