Ship To Shore

Location:
Galveston Historic Seaport
Pier 22 Suite, #8, Galveston, TX 77550

Galveston’s historic immigration story comes alive with a new experience set to open at Galveston Historical Foundation’s Galveston Historic SeaportShip To Shore allows visitors to follow in the footsteps of the early immigrants, from the long sea voyage with its mix of hardships and wonders to the hustle and bustle arriving in the 1880s at Galveston, one of the busiest ports and booming cities in the United States. An opening date will be announced in November.

Ship To Shore captures the reality of travel to Galveston in the late 19th and early 20th century. It brings to life the experiences of real people with raw human stories of survival and challenge that has not been captured before now,” states Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation’s Executive Director. “We are excited to see how the new attraction brings visitors to our island, allows each to connect to the past, and drives them to explore more of the island and the wonderful history and architecture that we hold. Ship to Shore is not a one-time experience, and we expect visitors to return again and again. As we progress with the new attraction, more real-life stories will be presented, and our Galveston story will expand.

The Ship To Shore experience creates a series of sequential experiential spaces alternating hands-on and innovative interactive learning with immersive experiences, all based on authentic and documented personal stories of immigrants landing in Galveston. The experience also utilizes a digital membership card that personalizes the experience to the visitor giving an authentic and new story each time they visit.
