Docent Led Tours of the Railroad Museum
Shawn Morrison leads guided tours at the Museum as a docent. Morrison is a longtime railfan and current AP Human Geography Teacher at Ball High School in Galveston. The public tour begins at 1:00 pm on Saturdays in the Railroad Museum's Map Room. Tours are a free add-on to paid museum admission. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
The Museum is excited to have Ms. Morrison aboard. Shawn has a Bachelor’s of History and Literature and a Master’s of History, both from the University of Houston - Clear Lake. While she is an avid student of history, Morrison wants to also use the tours as a vehicle to discuss the present and future of American Railroading. Expect to hear a healthy mix of museum history, discussions on high-speed rail, and her own experiences riding the rails (ask about her childhood run-in with the Stasi on a train in East Germany).
Want to pitch in? Morrison will hold the first training session for docents on September 12th at 9:00 am in the Museum’s Map Room. Call the Museum at (409) 765-5700 or e-mail us at email@example.com to reserve your spot. Training is free, but space is limited!
