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."

BY AND LARGE

We mean "generally," or "for the most part." Mariners often sail "by," that is, straight into the wind; or "large," at a right-angle to it. A vessel that sails both "by and large" will go well in most winds.
