FAQ’s

What is the 10 for 10 campaign?

We are asking people for a $10 donation to celebrate our 10th birthday. All of the money raised will pay for improvements to the museum so even more children can play, learn, explore, create, and discover.

What are you fundraising for?

Inside the museum we are refreshing some of our most popular exhibits and adding a new flexible room for visiting/seasonal/new exhibits that change throughout the  year.

Outside the museum we will be adding a brand new water feature that will mimic a real life stream.

What is the Wall of Fame?

The Wall of Fame is a gallery of photographs of our staff, board, sponsors, and others from when they were 10 years old. We are only exhibiting people who have given permission for their image to be used. People who provide their photographs understand that we may use their image on our website, Facebook, and Instagram pages, and at the museum.

If I send you a photograph of me, am I giving up ownership of my image?

No, your photo is your own. We are only exhibiting photographs of people who have provided photos. We want to celebrate childhood and provoke good memories of living on Galveston Island. The photographs will be displayed on our website, or Facebook and Instagram, pages. and at the museum.

Should I bring my original photo to the museum?

No, please bring copies of photographs only. We know how precious childhood images can be and we don’t want precious photographs to go missing. Please bring only copies as we cannot return photographs after the Wall of Fame.
