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.

"The sea belongs to us all, and every aspect of it, from halcyon calm to howling hurricane, is fraught with beauty."

- Samuel Eliot Morison
