Museum of the Coastal Bend

Collections Description
The Museum of the Coastal Bend displays the last 13,000 years of Texas history, from the first inhabitants of the Coastal Bend region through the French, Spanish, and Mexican colonial efforts, up to the range of diverse influence that have created the modern Texan culture. Our archaeological and historic collections tell this story through exhibits of Native American artifacts, cannons from the La Salle Expedition, artifacts recovered La Salle’s ship La Belle, and French and Spanish artifacts from the Fort St. Louis/Presidio La Bahia site.
