“Quite surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

It was a chilly rainy afternoon so the wife and I visited the museum. For such a small venue, it was put together rather nicely and had a wealth of information about the entire South Padre area.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

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.

“A lighthouse is a lighthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

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.

“Really enjoyed it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

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.
