Houston Sightseeing Tour and Galveston Day Trip

43 reviews
Experience both the Lone Star State’s bustling modern and quaint historic sides with this tour of contemporary Houston and storied Galveston on the Gulf of Mexico. Explore downtown Houston by double-decker bus before setting off to admire the Victorian mansions and Strand district in Galveston. Round-trip transportation leaves time for the beach or a dolphin-watching boat tour.

This was our third visit, still love the place! Not as macabre as you would think. There is a lot of history and super interesting exhibits. We learn something new each time and will continue to visit. Love the affordable gift shop too!

It may not seem like something you’d be dying to see when you come to Houston, but it is actually a really interesting stop! It is broken down into different sections that feature different aspects of funeral history. My favorite is seeing the old vehicles and hearses, including one used for a past president. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something a little different to do.

My husband thought I was crazy wanting to go here, but we ended up spending over 2 hours here. Unique, amazing, and beautiful displays of hearses, funeral carts, and funeral associated memorabilia. Displays were very informative. Very surprised in the size of the building. Every corner we turned, there was more!!! Enjoyable afternoon.

I highly recommend a visit to this unique museum. My friend an I were super impressed with the quality of the displays. I have never seen anything like this museum, perhaps it is the only one dealing with Funeral History in the entire US. Check it out!
