Friendly, helpful & knowledgeable staff; also the Seagull II Port of Galveston Tour & dolphin-watch boat ride is a must (good value for the money). Grandkids (ages 11 & 6) first ever trip to the coast & they loved it. I am 62 & disabled (need walker or wheelchair); was using walker that day, & museum & boat staff were... 更多
With a combo ticket you can see the Elissa, the museum, and take an hour tour of the area by boat. Loved all of it - especially the boat ride where we saw a sunken cement boat from long ago.
Lots of local history and fun wrapped up in this museum. Some very interesting and informative stuff on the Republic of Texas Navy...small and short lived as it was...I learned a good bit here and recommend it to any and all history buffs.
Small, but interesting museum displaying some of Galveston's seafaring history. The Elissa is the centerpiece of the museum. There is a video chronicling the restoration inside the museum. An audio device is available for touring the ship.
Pretty cool to see 19th century technology but one would think there would be a lot more to see for the money especially in a huge state like Texas. Was it worth it? Yes and No
I was a bit disappointed in the Texas Seaport Museum because it was small and had few items to view. However, the gift shop was excellent and so was the Elissa. The 1877 Elissa made the trip worthwhile. It has been resorted and you can self tour throughout most of the ship.
Was waiting to do dolphin tour when they gave us tickets to the museum. It was neat to be able to walk throughout the ship to see where the crew stayed. Makes going on a cruise so much more fun.
