Texas Maritime Museum

    Ship wrecks, ship building, fishing and deep sea oil rigs are all touched on in this museum. The museum is pretty small so nothing is explored in depth. An observation deck overlooks the harbor.

  Everything is accessible.

  RVs can be parked along the street or in the triangle formed by the intersecting streets.

  From the same parking spot it’s easy to go to three more small museums – the Rockport Center for the Arts, the Bay Education Center, and the Aquarium. These are all free, unlike the Maritime Museum which has a fee. We visited the Center for the Arts which is very small with one main gallery.  The accessible entrance is in the rear of the building. In the same area look for the World's Largest Blue Crab, a fiberglass sculpture elevated on high posts.
