Father's Day Train Rides

Just in time for Father's Day, the Harborside Express returns to service.  Bring your favorite train fan to the Galveston Railroad Museum for a fun family outing.

All train rides are $5 each for riders ages 3 and older.  Train rides are in addition to museum admission and may not be purchased separately.  

Just a few reminders:

  • Face masks are required to be able to board the Harborside Express.

  • Capacity is limited to 224 riders on Saturday and 192 riders on Sunday.  

  • Tickets for the Harborside Express will only be sold on a first come first serve basis, the day of the train ride, at the Railroad Museum.
