Trains are unique in their ability to captivate people of all ages, and there’s one place in Texas that belongs on the bucket list of every rail enthusiast. One of the largest museums of its kind in the nation, the Galveston Railroad Museum takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the evolution of the railroad industry. Between indoor exhibits and a five-acre train yard, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
Tickets are $12 for ages 13-64, $9 for seniors 65 and up, $6 for children 3-12, and free for children two and under. Train rides are offered every Saturday for an extra $6 per person. Visit the museum’s website or Facebook page to learn more.
