  • Nice self guided tour. Would not be enjoyable during the extreme heat, due to a good portion bring outside climbing in and out of train carts. Would love to see what more funding could restore. Tried ...  more »

  • It's cool but needs some work. Been there a few times. The last time I went the lady working there was very friendly and came up to us and told us some history of the place. You can also rent out the place for your kids birthday party. Kids would probably rate it 5 stars... If they liked trains!
  • The Galveston Railroad Museum is impressive to say the least. This museum will surely make any person a train lover. Feel free to roam the yard and enter different trains. I was able to ring the bell of one of the trains on the track. Great history. I absolutely loved the lobby that was made to look like an old-fashioned train station. They even had replica phone booths!
  • This is a great stop! The inside of the station has original benches, phonebooths, and wonderful statues of ppl coming and going. It's very charming historical building and the trains outside were fun to go through. Educational and nostalgic! Great gift shop, there is a snack bar as well. Active duty military was free entry. The trains were hot so tour earlier in the am!
  • The whole family loved it! Looking forward to going back! Would love to see an expansion of the model trains to model Galveston's railroad at its peak.
  • A cool place to stop if you are looking for some history in Galveston. I don't remember the exact price, but I remember it was pretty steep given what is there to see.
