A Ship to Shore Experience
Take a step back into time and get to know about Galveston’s humble beginnings with Ship to Shore.
The Galveston Historic Seaport experience walks guests through the life of settlers who migrated to Texas during the late 1800’s. It chronicles the journey from boarding the ship in Europe, to the conditions and hardships onboard, to the process of clearing customs, and finally, to starting new life in America.
A new addition to the tour is the ELLISA – an 1877 tall ship that still sails to this day. The vessel was rescued in the 1970s and is preserved by volunteers who maintain the ship daily.
