Train Show - October 4-5
Santa Train & Polar Express - TBD
mardi gras parade
Every year member's children have the chance to participate in the Firefighter's Children Parade. This year the parade was March 2, and the theme was Galveston History since the city turned 175 this year. What better way to celebrate Galveston History than on the mini-train!
December 14 was our annual Santa Train event. Santa came to the museum aboard our Harborside Express and visited with children in the Depot. Families got into the holiday spirit playing games, decorating Christmas crafts, and having their faces painted.
Summer hours begin March 10th! Museum hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily!
