  • Great place to buy souvenirs. T-shirts, shells, postcards - you name it. It is amazing the story of the number of times this has been rebuilt. Owners very persistent. Also can get cold drinks and sit ...  more »
  • We stop here every visit. Love to walk around and look at all the neat stuff. Prices range for very little and up! The kids each had a little money and we’re thrilled with their treasures to remember ...  more »

  • One of my all-time favorite souvenir shops to stop in. You will definitely find serenity stepping out on the deck and listening to the ocean sitting back with a cool beverage and enjoying the view with your loved ones or even if it is by yourself. Me and my daughter absolutely love coming here on a regular and I find myself watching in from time to time on my bike rides. Definitely a must-see and 5-star establishment. So many cool items and you cannot help but love the sandy floors.
  • If you don't mind crowds and are looking to get out of the sun Murdock's is the place. Over the years merchandise has changed to more tee shirt, but still some good old ocean fun junk shop stuff shells, sand castles, fish scale windchimes, Galveston shot glasses, glass dolphins and sea stars. Large children section books, dolls, pirate hooks. You can go on the decks to view ocean goers and sip a drink or snack. Nothing fancy or cheap at the snack shop but the view is fun and free. And you are at an ocean tourist trap so join the fun play for the view and enjoy.
  • It's a Galveston institution, friendly staff. The place consists of two buldings on pilings above the beach, connected by a large covered veranda with rocking chairs and viewing binoculars facing the water. In addition to the massive selection of souvenir shells, etc, you can get a COLD beer or strawberry daiquiri (margaritas, too!!) And take it the veranda to enjoy it's elevated view of the gulf. Bathrooms here are easily available and have always been clean, in my experience. Not the top of your list to do, but definitely worth a stop.
  • The biggest and best souvenir shop in Galveston and in the pier. They have 2 separate buildings just for stuff. You can also get an alcoholic beverage while sitting on their balcony watching the beach. They have a huge selection and variety of souvenirs and collectibles. Definitely check it out.
  • Great place to shop around. Shells are on the expensive side and can be found cheap just by walking 50 more feet to the ocean. Prices are on the high side for tourists. Lots of bright or beach type colors. You won't find normal reds, blues, blacks.
