“Terrific place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Me and my father took the tour and were pleasantly surprised at the place. Being able get on the trains themselves to get the feel of the time is very cool. Also the full room working train sets are very fun to watch. Will definitely be back!

My boys love coming here every time we visit. Now there is a short train ride you can take, too. Very Interesting.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

It is a good Mueseum but as party venue it cant be beat. Go here every year for a Mardi Gras ball and love it. Having all the trains around gives it a great atmosphere. Also, because its a museum it has a lot of bathrooms so no matter the party size there wont be a wait. Not sure who caters but it is great. Again, if you need to plan a party this is a great place in galveston

“Worthwhile visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

While visiting The Strand in Galveston, it is always fun to go to the railroad museum. It shows a lot of history and is a good place for both young and old.

“Beautiful Art Deco Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Yes it was a bit big for our smallish winter wedding, but getting married in the Garden of Steam, then moving indoors to the People's Gallery for the reception was awesome! People took pictures with the "Ghosts of Travelers Past" all night.
