Its original location in East Biloxi was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. A new location, near the Schooner Pier, has been chosen. Proceeds from the sale of prints and schooner charters will go towards preparing this new location.
Established in 1986, the Biloxi Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum contains hundreds of one-of-a-kind artifacts of the historic Biloxi seafood industry and is the only institution carrying out this mission on the Gulf of Mexico.
It preserves and interprets the maritime history and heritage of Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast through exhibits on shrimping, oystering, recreational fishing, wetlands, managing marine resources, charter boats, marine blacksmithing, wooden boat building, netmaking, catboats/Biloxi skiff, a shrimp peeling machine and historic photographs and objects.
