Had some trouble finding the place, but once there I enjoyed the visit. It has a nice overview of the Texas history. With a lot of interesting items not only about Texas but also about the history of the building.
A little hard to find from the parking lot but worth the effort. There a 3 museums in the small area. Covers pre-historic to present day with good emphasis on Mexican-American War.
My family and I planned the Light House tour along with the other 2 museums! So much history on the port and the children loved learning about it all!
This is a nice Lighthouse that you can go into and climb to the top. I believe it's the only one in Texas that allows you to do that. On some nights they actually play a movie on the side of the lighthouse. And the best part is it was free.
This small museum is fun to visit once. There are lots of interesting photos from the past and stories from local people. Some of the stories are video or audio taped.
With the combined tickets for the Lighthouse and Treasure museum it's only a few bucks and a great way to learn about local history in an informative way. Plus it gives you time to get out of sun and cool off for a bit. We enjoyed it but had to rush though so we didn't get to see the upstairs.
