All reviews harbor tour tall ship captain brian ellis island gift shop wonderful history package deal great boat ride short film historical society take your time great place to visit whole family few hours self guided saw dolphins a lot of fun
Great way to spend 1/2 day. I would suggest that you see the movie first which sets you up with history to complete the museum and ship tour. Would have been even better if there was a guide on the ship to answer questions. Don't...More
Ryan and Brian were enthusiastic guides who really seem to love what they do. Learned a lot about the harbor, saw a ton of dolphins, and had a really good time. I think it was $10 or $12 for the tour, which took about an...More
We just finished the harbor tour with Brian and Jose! Friendly and courteous. Brian was was extremely knowledgeable and funny. We were fortunate enough to see multiple dolphins and love the guys from restaurants who had begging pelicans at the door. We concluded with the...More
I am a member of an immigrant family and really looked forward to the museum. I was very disappointed in the "museum" part of the museum. There are pictures with stories of some families and that is pretty much it. There is a video about...More
Because it was New Years Eve, we checked the website for holiday hours before heading out. We paid for parking, and then when we arrived at 2pm, we found out that they were no longer selling tickets because they were closing at 3pm. There was...More
Captain Brian does an excellent job guiding you through the harbor. There is history and dolphins so fun for the whole family. We have done this tour several times and our daughter still loves it. Great value and lots of fun
If you are looking for an adventure for your children that gives them a taste of history, this is the place. NOTE: they do have sailors on-board the vessel practicing, rehearsing, instructing and refurbishing the ship. On one hand it is kind of cool because...More
Rain or shine, this is a must see for travelers to the island. I hadn't even considered it for years, because I had pretty much grown up on the island and never thought there was much I would learn or experience, wrong. This is a...More
Yes there is. The parking lots were $8 for up to 2 hrs ( I think). There were also parking meters. We didn't use either. We parked where it was free & walked about 6 or 7 blocks. No one said anything about validating... More

You buy the tickets at the entrance. Just make sure you check out the attraction tour times which you may find on the official visit Galveston site.

Which is the best attraction for older boys? Texas Seaport Museum, Ocean Star oil rig or the Naval Display (Cavalla/Stewart) at Seawolf Park

I am not sure if you would want to drive, but Houston has the Johnson Space Center. On the edge of Houston is the USS Texas Batttleship and the San Jacinto Monument. The battleship is old but interesting. The Monument is great if they will be studying TX history. If they are in public school they will be having TX history in 4th, once in middle school and I think again in high school. I teach TX history so I always suggest the monument. It is pretty neat to see all the artifacts and read the...More
