|One of many displays as the Texas Seaport Museum|
Instead, I'll just "spotlight" some of our faves from our stay here.
First up ...Texas Seaport Museum and the Elissa.
The museum had a focus on immigration as one of the displays. Galveston/Pelican Island was 2nd only to Ellis Island in New York for immigration from all of Europe. There was also a special display dedicated to the Texas Navy.
Yes, It was well worth every penny to walk about her decks and see the museum displays. What we thought would be an hour quickly became over 2 as we toured the Elissa and then the museum. Make sure you watch the video about restoring the Elissa…it’s amazing what it took to bring her back to life.

Tip: Look for rack cards for the Elissa (and the Harbor Tours-more on that another time). You'll save $1 per person for up to 6 paid admissions.
There is indeed a lot of history here! You can learn more about the Elissa at
Yup..one of our favorites! We look forward to visiting her again in the future!
