Mission



The mission of The 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."

GREASE THE SKIDS

We "grease the skids" to get something accomplished. When a new ship is ready to launch from inclined shipways, grease is used to overcome weight and inertia. On greased skids, a large vessel will slide easily into the water.
