Houston's Story: From Bayou to Ship Channel

DSC08783 2


The Houston Maritime Museum is excited to announce the opening of our new exhibit, “Houston’s Story: From Bayou to Ship Channel”.

The maritime museum has a special story to tell: How did Houston’s origins on a narrow, fauna and magnolia canopied stream evolve into today’s world-class city, home of a world-class port? The exhibit is designed to trace the growth from our beginnings to the significant impact we make on the world today. The maritime component is the basis for why we are all here. An often repeated statement “the town that built the port that built the city,” could not be more relevant today.

Beginning before 1825 with the establishment of Harrisburg where Brays and Buffalo Bayous meet, the new exhibit covers over two centuries of challenges, growth and prosperity for the Port and Houston. With historical photos, art, ship models and interesting facts the exhibit allows the visitor to follow Houston’s path in an informative and engaging way. A unique feature is the Port Vision interactive monitor, which provides a real time view on ships travelling in our Port and around the world. Adding interest to the exhibit are a timeline and hand-painted maps showing how Houston has evolved over the centuries.

Join us this month as we celebrate Houston's story with our new exhibit!
