A non-profit organization, the Houston Maritime Center and Museum offers a fun way to learn about maritime history and industry. In fact, it has welcomed visitors since 2000 and features unique artifacts from around the world. Here is some of what you can discover near our Houston Heights apartments:

One of the Greatest Naval Officers

See a replica of the ship that Admiral Horatio Nelson sailed on for the Royal Navy. In fact, he joined the Navy at 12, and later became known for his achievements against the French during the Napoleonic Wars. Admiral Nelson died at 47 while fighting in the Battle of Trafalgar.

HMS Bounty

Built by Master Builder Modeler Ronald Roberti, the HMS Bounty is made of metal parts and cherry, walnut, as well as other woods. Originally known as the Bethia, the HMS Bounty was commissioned by Great Britain in 1787. The ship's mission was to "find and transport breadfruit to the West Indies."

Group Tours

Grab your friends and enjoy a group tour. The docents bring maritime history to life through fascinating stories. They also offer insight into the collection and are experts in both historical and modern maritime information. The tours last between 60 and 90 minutes and require advanced reservations.

Maritime Book of the Month

The program focuses on fictional and non-fictional works that "help us expand our understanding of the sea and those who try to tame it."
