  • I really enjoyed visiting the museum. A lot of info that I did not know we had. The guide was very good and made it interesting all the way through. Can't wait to take my grand kids!
  • Really cool LITTLE museum and very nice employees.
  • Amazing and beautiful Museum
  • The music kiosks were all not functioning. Disappointing that we did not hear any of the many songs by Texas musicians. Not a single exhibit on LBJ or Lady Bird Johnson. Port Arthur is almost a ghost town with broken windows on historic buildings. Please improve this museum..
  • Awesome museum; it was one of the most interesting museums I've visited as an adult! This is definitely a must see for those who are interested in music, sports, history, etc. It's fascinating to see how many famous people came from the small city of Port Arthur & its surrounding areas!
