Happy Birthday to Us!

Join us in celebrating the 10th birthday of Galveston Children’s Museum on July 10th! We’re gearing up to celebrate with exciting activities to honor both our milestones and the joy of childhood.

Do you recall the days when a simple cardboard box transformed into a spaceship, sword, or castle? When a blanket doubled as a superhero cape and a stick became a mighty lightsaber? Those were the moments when imaginations soared, fueled by nothing more than a bucket and spade or a handful of Legos.

At the Galveston Children’s Museum, we provide the space for kids to truly be kids. It’s a place where exploration, investigation, creation, and discovery take center stage. We want to reignite the joy of childhood in everyone who walks through our doors.

The Galveston Children’s Museum has been sparking curiosity and creativity in children since we opened our doors in July 2014. As we mark our 10th anniversary, we are thrilled to celebrate a decade of engaging learning experiences for the children of Galveston and its visitors.
