Texas Seaport Museum and Elissa
Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PMCruise into this harbor and enjoy a trip back to the 19th century. This is the home of "The Elissa" a Scottish sailing vessel built in 1877. She took part in the bi-centennial parade to New York City Harbor July 4th 1976 and still takes a voyage now and then. The museum features computerized information about the immigrants who entered Texas through the Port of Galveston. You might find that a relative of yours once walked the same deck. You will also find assorted maritime exhibits and two screens that show exciting sea films throughout the day.
