This may not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. There is a haunted house as well that was surprisingly good. Turns out this building was used as a makeshift morgue after the 1910 hurricane that killed 6000 people on the island. The other...More

This museum surprised me as it was actually very informative about pirates and resident Galveston pirate legend Jean Lafitte. It's a small museum but has a lot of interesting tidbits about pirates both presented through the exhibits and the audio tour. It's a fun way...More

Well we went this last summer and found it very lacking. It's a self guided tour of what's supposed to be an old pirate ship, kids can do a scavenger hunt to find things and that was the only saving grace because nothing was authentic,...More
