Mission



The mission of GulfQuest/National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico is "to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to understand and appreciate the Gulf Coast's rich maritime heritage through exhibits, programs and activities."

ON THE ROCKS

We're "on the rocks" when our life seems filled with despair, but the term originated with shipwrecks, when a sailing ship caught on a "lee shore" could be driven onto a rockbound coast by an offshore wind.
