Kids will rarely ever hear the words don't touch when they visit Galveston Children's Museum. Virtually every single exhibit invites kids to get elbows-deep in activities, encouraging them to learn about the sciences and arts through play. Though the museum is designed for kids age 2–10, older children and adults will likely learn something new too—and have fun while doing it.
The Building: The historical Moody Mansion, built in 1895, houses the museum on its first floor
STEM: In Explore and Discover, kids play with marble ramps and electrical circuits, learning the principles of physics along the way
The Arts: Kids explore self-expression as they create masterpieces from paint, clay, textiles, or all three in A Stroke of Genius
Hidden Gem: The Lego wall at Construction Junction encourages children to build in new ways
For the Little Ones: At Come and Play visitors climb, build, and, of course, play in an exhibit geared towards kids age 2–5
Feet patter across three information-packed floors stacked inside the Ocean Star, a former drilling rig that spends its retirement as a museum and education center on Galveston's Pier 19. After two decades drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the rig has since been revamped and outfitted with interactive models and displays that illustrate the story of offshore oil, gas, and the energies that lurk beneath the world's oceans. Visitors can tap into videos for explanations of drilling, geology, and seismic topics, or stand next to scale models of production platforms. In addition to its lineup of eye-popping sites, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum and Education Center harbors ongoing exhibits showcasing the industry's careers, history, and safety measures. Self-guided tours seven days a week enable guests to explore the rig's nooks at their own pace, while an onboard staff stands by to answer questions and courteously laugh at all petroleum-related knock-knock jokes.
