Galveston County Museum Reopens

Galveston County Museum

The Galveston County Museum has been closed since the pandemic shutdown, but has recently reopened to the public.

The museum formed in 1976. It was located on Market Street for many years. After Hurricane Ike damaged the HVAC and electrical systems in 2008, the unharmed artifacts were moved.

Now the museum is located in the Galveston County courthouse building at 722 Moody Ave (21st Street) in Galveston.

Managed by the Galveston County Historical Commission, the museum cares for a collection of over 10,000 artifacts and archives.

They also maintain the historical commission’s library. If you are interested in research or donating an artifact related to Galveston County history, please call 409.766.2340.

The museum is free to visit, open Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 10am to 4pm

To schedule a private event, inquire about donating artifacts, conduct research, or for more information, please call 409.766.2340.
