Help Us Recover From Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey slammed into Port Aransas on Aug 25, 2017. Although we’re still recovering, and still waiting on insurance awards, both the Port Aransas Museum and Farley Boat Works are open for business. Your generous donations of time and money are helping us rebuild and keep the history of our island community alive.
