    Join the Gulfport Historical Society as they take a stroll through history in Gulfport. The tour examines the creation of this small seaside hamlet; the tour guides — all Gulfport locals with a penchant for history and storytelling — share the town's history and stories with the group. The tour starts at the Gulfport History Museum where you can take a peek at some of their historic photos.

    Tour free for Gulfport Historical Society members. All others pay $10 per person. We have a water cooler at the museum; please bring your refillable bottle to fill up before the tour.

    These tours sell out, so advance ticket purchase is highly suggested. Members should pre-register to ensure they have a spot. We don't love turning people away, but when the group gets too large it's hard for everyone to hear our tour guides.

    Please note: Our tour guides are all volunteer; while it's optional, they do appreciate tips. 

    Thanks to the Gulfport Merchants Chamber for co-hosting this tour!

    Help make — and preserve — history by volunteering with the Gulfport Historical Society. Volunteers are currently needed to act as hosts during two-hour shifts at the Gulfport History Museum.

    You don’t need to know a lot about Gulfport’s history to volunteer; you just need to enjoy meeting and talking to people. Society members will train volunteers in a fun, friendly, learn-as-you-go atmosphere. Dog lovers can bring their canine pals with them when staffing the museum.

    For more information, plan to attend their volunteer open house, which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 10am-1pm at the museum located at 5301 28th Ave. S. in Gulfport. They’ll provide lunch, soft drinks and water.

    For more information on these and other volunteer opportunities, please contact Lisa Sieg at volunteer@gulfporthistoricalsociety.org or 585-857-7188.
