Field Trips

Imagine spending a day with TRAINS! You can tour several of our rail cars, take a ride on a caboose and share lunch in our dining cars! The Galveston Railroad Museum is an exciting place to visit as we have a wealth of information regarding the history of rail cars and railroading that made our country what it is today. We offer five tracks, in our four-acre rail yard, of train cars to read and learn about. We have a model train theater and the world’s largest collection of railroad dining ware. We also have an interactive display of lights and crossbucks that the children can activate by pushing buttons.

Please note the Museum will be closed from mid-October until the 2nd week of January, and we will be unable to host Field Trips during that time.
