Bay City: Matagorda County Museum

The extraordinary discovery of La Belle by the Texas Historical Commission – and the unprecedented excavation that followed – is highlighted at this small museum. A detailed diorama of the investigation, many reclaimed artifacts, and the bronze cannon that identified the ship are all there to be discovered.
