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 a historic dining car! 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.
