  • The museum is beautiful! We enjoyed the film at the beginning of the tour. It was very informative about Galveston and Texas history. The upstairs was full of western art, just beautiful! We highly recommend going for a visit!
  • This is such a unique and beautiful museum, which feels like being in the mansion of an eccentric old collector who packed his house to the gills. Lots of incredible artifacts from Texas history and well curated special exhibits. Definitely worth a stop when you're visiting Galveston
