  • The museum displays an interesting history of the port of Galveston, and together with the Tall ship Elissa, is an interesting way to spend a couple of hours in Galveston, it is located in Pier 21.  more »
  • Very cool experience to explore the "Elyssa", a tall ship from the 1800's. She is a beautiful ship, and to be on her deck feels like traveling back in time. I visited at the very hottest part of the y...  more »

  • Beautiful ship. It was fun walking around and inside the ship- very cool part of history. Bundle your visit to save some money and take the harbor tour they offer- we saw dolphins! The boat guides were fun and shared a lot of great, interesting information about the harbor. I was nervous about getting seasick but I was fine. Parking at the Pier was not free.
  • Came for the Tall Ship Festival and had such a good time. The in-laws got to ride on one of the Tall Ships for the Tall Ship Race and they had a blast. The Elissa has a great story and it's absolutely beautiful. We learned a l0t and had some great food. They even had circus performers! Definitely recommend!!
  • Tour was part of the Tall Ships in port celebration. Excellent time. Elissa is under sail currently and unavailable at this posting date. Call for availability. 😎
  • This ship is in Harbor most of the time. Spectacular to see at port or when taken sale. April 5th through 8th tall ship exhibition. Three ports of call in in the Gulf of Mexico. First time at Galveston. A must-see. These ships are from the mid 1800s, Google Tall Ships Galveston...
  • What a treasure of history. The ship is amazing to see and understand that everything is handmade. Makes you really appreciate how hard it was to travel I those days. A must see.
