Explore the Gulf of Mexico by stepping on board a full-size replica of a container ship, docked inside the building, ready to leave port!
Exhibits are thematically linked to areas inside the container ship: the main deck, crews quarters, captains quarters, the bridge and inside the containers.
Visitors will discover an array of topics including early settlements and trade routes, marine archeology and shipwrecks, Gulf animal and plant life, weather and hurricanes, marine and coastal environments, maritime commerce and shipbuilding, ship navigation and communication, offshore oil/gas platforms, and much more.
Traveling exhibitions will expand the visitor experience. These exhibitions will feature a combination of maritime artifacts and interactive elements, and will change frequently to attract new and repeat visitors to GulfQuest.
