Pier 21 theater was raved about by a local that we had talked to, so we decided to check it out. The girl at the admissions counter looked less than enthused to be there and looked like she'd rather be somewhere else. The background music and noise were so loud that we couldn't hear the voices of the narrators of... 更多
We saw The Great Storm, a 25 minute movie about the 1900 Galveston hurricane. $6 per person was too much for what it was. It was my husband and I so we paid $12 and it reminded me of those cheesy movies you had to watch in history class...and I love history! I did learn some things from the movie,... 更多
We stopped in to see the movie on the 1900 hurricane. Ticket was $6 each, and the "movie" was about 25 minutes long. I say "movie" because it was essentially a slideshow. The explanations were good, and the script was enjoyable, but for the price, I expected something more impressive. If you can somehow get a half-price discount, it is... 更多
There are just two short films of relatively low quality, and , of course, a gift shop. No artifacts, photos or other displays of the horrendous storm.

It is a great story that demonstrates what a... 更多
We went to see The Great Storm movie...but it wasn't a movie, merely a collection of drawings, photos, and narratives from the storm. While we learned something new, like what happened to the bodies, we were disappointed with the presentation given for the admission charged.
I'm from Galveston County, and have turned a lot of folks onto Galveston Island. For those who have 30 minutes to watch this VERY informative show, I almost always make sure it's on the itinerary. I've probably seen it at least 20 times now, and it never gets old. I'm always amazed at how the seawall came into being and... 更多
