I loe lighthouses and the history behind them. You cn find it here. The actual museum isn't open much since I beleive it is mainly volunteered operated however you can still good a good feel for Lighthouse's history for it building to now.

Only viewed from ground as unable to climb the stairs but suppose view of Laguna Madre and Gulf of Mexico would be worth the climb if younger.

It allowed a self paced review of the history of Port Isabel and the surrounding areas. Relics from the past and interesting information throughout. Very enjoyable.

We enjoyed touring the historical museum, and seeing artifacts from the founding of Port Isabel, and even previous to it. Also, it had a really nice gift shop, with lots of nautical themes.

The outside is pleasant and looks wonderful, although the inside is dirty and needs repair. The windows were filthy and cracked and the stairs were rickety...! The top offered a beautiful view on the other hand.
