  • This is a must see and hear old fashioned Opera house. Beautiful acoustics. I can safely say there is not a bad seat in the house.  more »
  • Old Galveston was a major business center in its day (late 1800s) with shipping and railroads. The Grand was built as a major opera and theatre house and dedicated in 1894. With the hurricanes since, ...  more »

  • The Grand always has something going on! We have been twice in recent months, once for an 'open mic' event which displayed the local talent of several Galveston natives; another time to see 'Stomp' which was absolutely worth it. A true mixture of small and large acts alike speaks volumes about the staff's ability to pull in a variety of entertainment. The charm of this venue inside and out as a historic landmark only adds to your experience. I highly recommenced taking time to look at upcoming events and visit while you are in town!
  • We saw "Stomp." Such an incredibly beautiful theatre! Was exciting just to be there... the show was amazing, too! In a great location. 2 blocks from The Strand in Galveston, so we walked around, shopped and had some lunch before the show. Great afternoon with my boys!
  • Cute historically restored theater. The seats are horribly tiny. Very cramped and very small. No leg room. My shoulders are wider than the actual seats on the main floor. My arms literally overlapped in to chairs on either side of me. It was like sitting in a child's seat at an elementary school. The restoration is beautiful but a complete fail on practical functionality and comfort. I will definitely not return.
  • Went to see the Nutcracker again, saw it last year and loved it. Was fun again. All the little kids and big. Principal dancers always great. Look forward to seeing it next year. And we don't have anyone dancing, just enjoy the show
  • I really enjoy watching shows here. The performers are so close...The staff is amazing. It’s located near some great restaurants! If I could give 10 stars, I would!

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
