  • This was fun if you are a train enthusiast. If not you might find it perhaps boring. It would be great to have more tours inside of the cars and even to be able to lunch or dine in one. Also more...

  • Very nice museum with a nice train station building and plenty of railroad engines and cars to see. It was a very hot day but some of the cars are air conditioned so you can cool off a bit before continuing your visit. I spent about and hour and 15 minutes to see it all. It is not expensive and well worth a visit.
  • What a fun experience it was! Visiting this museum definitely brought a perspective of technology, time and speed to my children. It was clean and we loved the status. The station and building take you back in time. Nice to also see some Galveston history. The different kind of trains, mail, passenger or business also teaches without words how society was. It's a small museum with a lot of information. The caboose ride is short but I believe a must. Check the schedule and buy your tickets online its limited space. Museum ticket different from ride. Parking is free. Hope you enjoy it.
