Don’t miss the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum’s newest exhibit – Camille at 50.
“The Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum will host a series of speakers, events, and exhibitions between June 1st and November 30th 2019. Camille at 50 will tell the story of the destruction caused by the storm, as well as, the story of the rebirth and resilience of the Coast. The exhibition will cost $10 for the general public and free for current members.
Exhibitions will include an immersive/ interactive exhibit on the third floor of the museum. This exhibit will feature photos of each city along the coast, an interactive storytelling exhibit based on the AT&T phone banks that provided many with their only form of communication after the storm, and we will be featuring the documentary CAMILLE: THE ORIGINAL MONSTER STORM by Oxford, MS filmmaker Rex Jones. It will debut on August 16th at Premiere Cinema in Biloxi and then will be showing in the museum’s Hurricane Gallery for the duration of the exhibition. There will also be an exhibit of furniture built by Wade Guice who is the grandson of Wade and Julia Guice who each played a crucial role during Camille as the Directors of the Harrison County and Biloxi Civil Defense Departments.”
