  • 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!
  • Amazing and beautiful 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!
  • I had never been to this museum, I took friends from the UK and it was one of the best Museums I have ever been to! What is sad is that I am from the Gulf Coast, and didn't know about it, until I started looking for local things to take my friends too.
