Museum of the Gulf Coast

The Museum of the Gulf Coast celebrates the biology, history, and unique culture of the southeastern Gulf Coast, covering the region between Houston and New Orleans. There are two floors of exhibits including features on biodiversity, archaeology and paleontology. The first floor focuses on the pre-history and history of the region and the early petroleum industry. The Gulf Coast Hall of Fame includes politicians, filmmakers, and several successful Hollywood actors including Evelyn Keyes (Gone with the Wind) and G.W. Bailey (Police Academy). Animator Kelly Asbury (Beauty and the Beast, Shrek, Spirit), Karen Silkwood, and Major Tom Collins (one of the first pilots to break the sound barrier) have exhibits in this space along with accomplished individuals from many different fields (science, education, politics). There is also a rotating gallery which hosts a new exhibit every four months. The second floor showcases our decorative arts and maritime collections. We also pay tribute to artists, musicians, and athletes who have roots in this area including (but not limited to) Robert Rauschenberg, Janis Joplin, Edgar and Johnny Winter, Jimmy Johnson, and Babe Zaharias. The Museum offers customized tours and a wide variety of educational programming for pre-school children through adults.

We saw the museum on TA. Read the reviews and decided to take it in. We were greeted by the man at the front desk who was very friendly. Even though I am sure he has given the spiel hundreds of times he took time with a thorough overview.
As we went through the various exhibits it was apparent that this was a cut above most small town museums. Everything was well thought out and skillfully displayed. There is something for almost everyone in this facility.

The director came by and spoke with me. I could tell he takes great pride in the place, as he and all the contributors should.

PS. If your an old hippie like me the Janice Joplin exhibit makes it all worthwhile.

I didn't go to the museum. I just came for the Roadside America Dalmatian fire hydrant attraction! Most definitely worth the stop! So much so that when we came through for our Florida trip we stopped again to bring my eight year old niece. She loved it. So did the teens in the car who didn't want to stop.

This wooden house looks very old. The location of the house is at the Tex Ritter Park, next to the Dutch windmill. We didn't go inside as it was closed because of the election day. We took some pictures and walked in the park.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine

Reviewed By 12257mars - Port Arthur, Texas

Even though I live here and pass often, I had never stopped and walked up. But when my sister and brother-in-law visited they wanted a close up look. Walking up you feel the reverence of the grounds. The workmanship on the statue and surrounding structures is stunning. You will leave with a different feeling.

Beaumont Botanical Gardens

Reviewed By Mike-Pam W - Beaumont, Texas

Beautiful and peaceful but because the indoor area is like a walk-through terrarium, it's very warm and humid. The water features and small bridge add to it's beauty. The lush indoor garden area provides exceptional picture taking opportunities. A must-see especially for those who live in Southeast Texas and those who enjoy the peace and tranquility of walking through areas of lush green foliage.
