Grew up in Texas City, so the museum was fun to see. We were in the area for my 50th High School reunion so seeing the museum brought back at loit of memories.

I had heard of the 1947 explosion but knew very few details. The docents were great as were the film and exhibits to give me the history. There is also an excellent model train exhibit upstairs manned by the Galveston Model Train club. All in all an enjoyable and informative afternoon.

The museum was renovated recently and has a number of cool exhibits that relate to local history. Including a cannon that was recovered nearby from a civil war era sunken ship.

Great collection and nice staff. Excellent Civil War and local history. Model train exhibit upstairs is wonderful. USS Westfield exhibit is particularly interesting as it involves a gunboat destroyed in Galveston bay at the Battle of Galveston. January 1, 1863.

I attended the museum with a large group and was pleasantly surprised. I've lived in the Houston area all my life but had never actually visited Texas City or been to this museum. It's definitely worth the hour drive from Houston. The museum docent was a native so she was quite informative. The museum began with the city's earliest history... More
