Film regarding history of Galveston. Anyone visiting the City should see, makes one appreciate the historic buildings, including the homes, and along with Strand. Add bonus, was the film on Pirates history of the area that most have forgotten about.

This film is pretty good and gives a historical review about the Great Storm of the 1900's. Over 6,000 people lost their lives in this storm in America and resulted in millions of dollars of damage. A very sobering picture.

We really like the 2 shows. The information on the hurricane of 1900 was enlightening. Very interesting.

Very nice lady sells the tickets, mans the gift shop and runs the films - a multi tasker indeed. Pick up the brochure from the Galveston Visitors Center to get $1off per person. The films were very good and informative. The Great Storm shows every...More
