Galveston Museum Day
Resiliency and a heart for preservation have helped make Galveston one of the most well-known historic towns on the Gulf Coast. The strength, ingenuity, and progress of Galvestonians in the aftermath of the 1900 Storm are captured within the walls of numerous museums on the island. On January 25 – 26, 2020, these museums will offer incentives for history buffs to take a glimpse into the island’s storied past.
During Museum Day, visitors can learn about Galveston’s place as one of the wealthiest cities in the United States during the late 1800’s, the powerful families who helped build the city, Galveston’s significance to immigration in the region, and the importance of the industries that keep Galveston a thriving coastal city and tourism destination today.
Museum Day brings together several local museums for two days of free and discounted admission.
