  • This was a great museum and the entry price was reasonable. This is an information heavy type museum so if you don't like reading its going to be a bore. The exhibits all seem to have been donated from locals and everything seems to be in good condition. The Katrina video was way too long. Its basically clips of the broadcast from that day. It was still informative to see how people in Mississippi dealt with the storm,but there's no way a video in a museum should be that long. I really felt like the museum gave you the history of shipping and seafood from the area so anyone interested should check it out. I would call ahead as the hours may change and I would not advise that anyone purchase a ticket in advance.Also we were the only people in the entire musem that day so I guess its never crowded. There is no parking so you'll have to park on the opposite side of the museum and walk.
  • We enjoy the museum. ... It was informative and interesting. ... Price and service was good. ... Clean bathroom. ... We got there late so we roam around approximate an hour or less. ... We had fun. ...
  • We had so much fun here. We learned so much about the seafood industry and how they used to do oysters and shrimp. They have a wonderful video on the impact of Hurricane Katrina. Wonderful learning experience
  • So much to see concerning the seafood industry and how it's done. Even have some cool boats on the inside. Also how Hurricanes effect the seafood industry. Very informative.
  • What a beautiful tribute to the fishing and Maritime industry in Biloxi and Mississippi. This is the museum that was rebuilt after Katrina and is 3 stories of beautiful exhibits and memorabilia. I learned a lot regarding the past and future of marine life conservation to keep the fresh US seafood market viable. Plan on several hours to walk, read, sit, and listen to all the information available. Great gift shop too.
