The Galveston Railroad Museum is located in the Shearn Moody Plaza; 123 25th Street, Galveston, TX. the museum opened its doors in 1982. This poster is a very small sampling of the extraordinary collection of restored engines, cars and railroad memorabilia showcased here. The Museum was devastated by Hurricane Ike in September of 2008; the railroad cars, engines and the lobby of the museum were flooded with 10 ft of saltwater.  Volunteers have been working tirelessly to restore all of these treasures. The Museum is now open 7 days per week 10 am-5 pm for self guided tours.
