Houston Maritime Museum

After an unexpectedly short day doing some art installation, the rest of my schedule was wide open. I hit the Houston Maritime Museum. I planned on the Houston Fire Museum as well, but the rain kept me off the road and away from the city's bad drivers. I did get a call returned from the Telephone Museum. Groups of ten or more can schedule tours but the lone visitor only had three hours on Tuesdays to see the sites. I hate mornings, but I may get up for telephones on display.
