The Interactive History of Janis Joplin’s Hometown | Atlas Obscura x Visit Port Arthur

From Atlas Obscura.

The Museum of the Gulf Coast is 39,000 square feet of fascinating history crammed into one place. From the largest mural in the Southwest to a gallery personally designed by the famed modern artist Robert Rauschenberg, the museum is a trip through Texas’s history. But perhaps none of these galleries is as big a draw as the gallery paying tribute to Janis Joplin, Port Arthur’s homegrown star. Come see her original artwork and a replica of her famous psychedelic Porsche, all while learning how she shaped her hometown—and how it shaped her. Rock on.
