The Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum was established in 1986 to preserve and interpret the maritime history and heritage of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The recently completed museum accomplishes this mission through an array of exhibits, artifacts and an extraordinary collection of photographs which tell the story from the time of the first Indian settlement through generations of immigrants whose journey contributed to the melting-pot culture of the Gulf Coast.

Open Monday-Saturday from 9-4:30 and Sunday from Noon-4 p.m. Gift shop available.

Please join the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum for the Jeff Baldock Art Exhibit Opening Reception and take some time to hear from the artist himself. There will be freshments and hors d’oeuvres and all art pieces are available for purchase.

Jeff is a self-taught photographer originally from Indiana and a Mississippi Gulf Coast resident for the last 45 years. His interest in photography started at the young age of eight years old but his photography career only started three years ago after retiring from the chemical industry which he had been a part of for 40 years. He specializes in long exposure, landscape photography and can usually be found out with his camera in the late evening or early morning. His work is on display and available for sale at several locations along the coast and we are thrilled to showcase his work from March 2nd to May 30th.
