Texas Maritime Museum reviews
The museum is very focused on the nautical history of the area. It was fascinating. Best if you like to read the information plaques. The video was good, too.

My husband and I are on vacation in Rockport, visiting from Austin. Since the weather had turned cooler we decided to go check this place out. It was very interesting. We both enjoyed looking at everything. You can go to the very top on the 3rd floor and look out over the bay and then see the ocean. You can also see lots and lots of boats. The entire view from way up there is spectacular!! I really loved how beautiful it was! I recommend this place to everyone.
This museum has little bit of everything from the history of Spanish discovery of the region to commercial fishing, lighthouses, boat building and marine oil exploration. They also have an extensive maritime based library. New exhibits are in the process of being added. Staff was most friendly and informative. This is a good place to spend a few hours exploring!
