“Don't miss this.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Go to the visitor's center on Broadway and get the map so you can drive yourself to see all of the sculptures. They are amazing! It will take about an hour to see all of them, but it is worth spending the time. You will also get a great tour of the beautiful old houses that are in the area.

“Some are very impressive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Galveston Chamber of commerce has an incorrect address for some of the sculptures. Many of the ones on the west part of town are far apart and not at the address listed. Some of the ones in the north central part of town are in an area that made us uncomfortable to drive in at night. The sculpture on the east are closer together and most are very interesting. Be careful on at the intersections with cars parked on the streets it is sometimes hard to see approaching traffic..

“Sad history of Ike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It was sad seeing all the trees that were sacrificed during Ike,
but Galveston made the best with incredible sculptures all around town. Get a map and see them all.

“They've lost their glamour since last visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It's worth pulling the map off the Internet to follow the tour. We first saw them shortly after they were completed so they seemed beautifully varnished. Most have not been updated since. It's still a great tour and Free!!

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ask the hotel clerk where you can get a guide that shows you streets to take, addresses, who did the sculpture, etc. We had a BLAST driving around in the car looking at the sculptures done by artists that came up with the idea of using the destroyed trees as artwork!
