Closed to extreme damage from Hurricane Harvey. No plans to reopen the museum anytime in the future. There are several very nice pieces of artwork outside the museum to see as well as the shrimp boats in the harbor.

Destroyed by the hurricane, but plans are underway to rebuild. Temp use of an old restaurant for the time being.

The exhibits are always wonderful and change frequently, making it fun for us to keep returning. And the staff is always friendly and helpful. Don't go to Rockport without stopping in.

Nice place with beautiful artwork both inside and out. Paintings, sculptures, wall art were all awesome to see. There is even a gift shop. There were some children workshop classes going on and it sounded as if they were having a blast.

Attended the annual art festival and it was second to none. Would definitely return to Rockport just for the art show.

Really good local artists. A small museum, but worth the visit. The gift shop has better than average souvenirs of a nautical nature.

There were a lot of pieces of local art for sale and the prices were reasonable. Paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery and even some woven items.
