We enjoyed our visit. Wanted to see more on the Great Storm of 1900 and were a little disappointed there wasn't more there - well, if there was more, it wasn't readily available to the public. Still a nice place to visit.

If you want to learn about Galveston history this is a great place to start. A small but very nice museum upstairs and an awesome kids library on the first floor.

We had some time after a tour before dinner and decided to visit the Rosenburg Library/Museum. It was an interesting place, free to visit and the museum houses an interesting small book collection as well as memorabilia from WWI.
