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."

DEAD IN THE WATER

When our plans are stalled, we say we're "dead in the water." A sailing vessel without wind, or a powered vessel with an engine failure, drifts aimlessly out of control. Such vessels are dead in the water.
