  • 20 minutes from Galveston, this museum is great for museum lovers or those looking for indoor activities. We were not able to see the majority of the model trains as that display is only open on Satur...  more »
  • A well laid out exhibit of the infamous 1947 explosion at the city wharf. The remains of one of the ships is really stunning. A very informative display of oil drilling on land and sea. The 2nd floor ...  more »
  • This is a great regional museum that portrays Texas City's resilience to hurricanes, the large ammonium nitrate explosion of 1947 and the change of sea port status. This museum is educational and inte...  more »

  • 1sr time at museum and people were so rude to my 5 year old who is partially hearing impaired. He attempted to touch "did not touch" just attempted to touch the model train and right away they were attacking him. They were being rude to him acting like children themselves and not their own age. Very dissappointed of this place.
  • For a small town like Texas City, you'll be surprised how awesome and extensive this museum actually is until you visit it. This town still remains to be the location of the worst industrial accident in the USA to date, from 1947, when two ships at the small port blew up . There's a lot if history in this rich little town starting with artifacts from the civil war, and was the location of the first air force squadron in Texas! And to my knowledge this city still has the longest man made fishing pier in the world called the dike. Go and see for yourself. Allow yourself about 2 hours if you like to read all the articles, watch the film's, and look at the artifacts galore!
  • I've lived in Texas since 1968 and this is my first visit to the museum. This is a great representation of our town.
  • Great history of Texas City including Army Aviation and amazing model railroading
  • So much lost history in this little town. I wish they made all this learning mandatory in the TC schools. I grew up here and left with so much knowledge. They talk lots about the Texas City disaster. I feel there were so many parts of the museum about this disaster and it seemed a little disorganized. My kids loved the hands on parts with oil drilling and dinosaurs long ago. Would love a little more info about the Karankawa natives. Surely there is much more to this little town and I hope the citizens can help build upon this little museum. The local chemical plants should shell out some dough to aid the place. It is a great start. Very affordable too. Wish 6th street can look like old 6th street again.
