The Gulf of Mexico is a national treasure, serving as the international doorway to the Americas, from its discovery in the 1500s to the present day.

Until now, no maritime museum has been established to celebrate the historical, economic and cultural significance of "America's Sea" and its coastal region.

GulfQuest is the first museum dedicated to the Gulf Coast's rich maritime traditions – and one of the only interactive maritime museums in the country.

"For all at last return to the sea – to Oceanus, the ocean river, like the ever-flowing river of time, the beginning and the end."
