Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum

The museum features three floors of models, exhibits, equipment and interactive displays illustrating the story of offshore exploration and production.
Galveston Harbor Tour & Dolphin Watching
Don’t miss this chance to get a new perspective on Galveston Bay and the historic Port of Galveston. The Galveston Harbor Boat Tour offers knowledgeably narrated tours that explore the wide variety of birds and marine life that teems in the Bay. Playful dolphins almost always show up to entertain themselves by watching the red-and-white boat and its passengers.
1892 Bishop’s Palace
Ranked among the top 100 homes in the U.S. for its architectural significance, this ornate 1893 building was the home to the family of Walter Gresham, a former Confederate colonel, and U.S. Congressman. The Bishop’s Palace is recognized as one of America’s finest examples of Victorian exuberance and Gilded-Age extravagance.
Spend the Morning in the Strand Historic District
While strolling along The Strand, duck into any of the historic buildings, saved and restored by the Galveston Historical Society. Visitors can spend hours walking about this historic area!
Moody Gardens, the great indoors! Moody Gardens is a perfect day trip that allows you to spend some of the day inside and some outside so there is a chance to escape the heat. Pack your swimming gear if you plan to take in every part of the moody gardens.
NASA Space Station
Located just outside Galveston, the NASA Space Center Houston is the official visitor center for NASA Johnson Space Center. Stop by on your way home and spend a few hours or all day. There are many things to see and do depending on your interests.
