Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum, Biloxi

4.3
The Museum has brought life to local maritime history and heritage by replicating two 65′ two masted Biloxi Schooners. Examples of living maritime history, they sail the Mississippi Sound and waters of the north central Gulf of Mexico almost daily. The Museum also conducts year round educational programs and a summer Sea-n-Sail Adventure Camp which teaches youth about local maritime heritage.

  • I'm always interested in museums that tell the story of the industry of an area, and this one does an excellent job. It also portrays the people who made Biloxi the seafood capital of the world in the early 1900s, how they lived and why things changed. Beautiful boats build locally, great use of video. And just the right size - worth visiting!
  • Watched the movie on Katrina, which made you feel like you were there. After being here a couple weeks, we could pinpoint many spots that were filmed, including right by where we are staying. The hotel that was here was demolished. Frank enjoyed the boats on display and all the fishing and shrimping info
  • So much to see and worth seeing. Highly recommended even if you're not into maritime history, such as Katrina photos and videos.
  • Great place to take your family, loved talking to a volunteer there that had so much knowledge about the artifacts. There is a small play area for kids to play outside of the museum that is free, real nice. There is a fee to enter the museum but it's totally worth it.
  • This is an extraordinary local museum. The displays are generally well organised and informative. The graphic wall sequence of coastal zone history requires attention, but is worth it. The long videos about the evolution of maritime commerce show the challenges and immense changes faced by the folks that "weathered" it.
