Our HISTORY

Tracing Our Maritime Legacy

The Texas Maritime Museum started in the late 1970s during the Rockport Seafair Festival. It officially opened in 1989, becoming the State of Texas’ Official Maritime Museum. It earned accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums in 2005, a rare achievement among Texas museums. In 2012, the museum expanded its facilities to enhance education and collections.
