It is a popular venue with bus trips of seniors from Houston, East Texas, and Southwest Louisiana.
One of the features that makes the museum a winner with large groups of seniors is the diversity of the collection and traveling exhibits.
Does your senior group have music fans? They will love the Texas Music Hall of Fame featuring legends like Janis Joplin, Tex Ritter, Richie Valens, and ZZ Top.
How about sports fans? The Texas Sports Fall of Fame honors the greats including Jimmy Johnson and Bum Phillips.
Maybe your Texas senior travel team has history buffs? At The Museum of the Gulf Coast they can learn about the original Native American groups that inhabited the region, early European settlers, and the oil boom that led to the region’s growth and development.
This is just a brief window into everything The Museum of the Gulf Coast has to offer.
With Southeast Texas’ mild winters, the Museum of the Gulf Coast is a wonderful year round travel destination for senior individuals and groups looking to explore Texas history, to take in the Texas Music Hall of Fame (or the Texas Sports Hall of Fame), or to make a pilgrimage to Port Arthur, the birth place of Janis Joplin.
