This is the place to visit if you are interested in the 1900 hurricane and the history of how Galveston Island rebuilt, elevated itself, and built the famous seawall. The librarians are very helpful. It is a gorgeous old building.

Visit the little museum on the 4th floor for a neat little tour of Texas history. There's also an art gallery attached to the museum.

Love the architecture of the historical building. I love the Historical information about Galveston offered upstairs. The computer lab is great for visitors' who need to stay in touch with their "other" life! The children's section is wonderful and they usually have an offering of Storeytelling!

Don't miss the fourth floor of the library for a free and delightful history museum for Galveston and a complementary art museum. I imagine the video harbor tour was designed most for children since you stand behind an historic ship's wheel, it certainly interested this old-timer too. The library staff is friendly and willing to answer your questions. Please make... More

This library is located in a historical building which has been added to and remodeled from time to time. It still retains its original charm. There is a very good history collection here. Worth a visit for libary-lovers as well as those who appreciate old buildings and history.

The top floor of the Rosenberg Library has a very nice and, most notably, free museum with interesting little exhibits on local history and Galveston culture.

The library itself is pretty average. It's open to the public so there is free admission and wifi. There is a museum on the 4th floor that is interesting if you are looking for something indoors to do.
