Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for students, ages 6 to 18, and free for children under 6.

Pirate or patriot? Smuggler or businessman? Merciless murderer and thief, or hero in time of war? These are the contradictions of the legendary Jean Laffite. His harsh actions have secured his place in infamy, but his motives remain a mystery to this day. Whatever the reasons, the mere mention of Laffite in the early decades of the 1800s sent merchant ships throughout the Gulf of Mexico racing for safe harbor. During the last three years of his marauding campaign, Laffite made Galveston Island his base of operations. As for the treasure he is said to have buried there, none has been found…yet. Don't miss THE PIRATE ISLAND OF JEAN LAFFITE.

Shows daily at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, and 3:30pm.
Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for students, ages 6 to 18, and free for children under 6.

Between 1835 and 1935, more than 200,000 immigrants from all over the world entered the United States through Galveston, Texas. Their stories are as rich and diverse as their origins, and they gave the island a most unique cultural heritage which continues today.

For some, the city was their final destination, but for most it was merely a way-station on their journey to the interior of the country. By wagon train and rail they would push on to the north and west to tame the land, start businesses, and build communities on the frontier. In the process, Galveston would grow and prosper, becoming the most important shipping and financial center in the Southwest. As the premier port of entry for the entire region, Galveston would rightfully come to be called America's Gateway on the Gulf.

GALVESTON-GATEWAY ON THE GULF is a documentary telling the story of these, and all the other immigrants who shaped the island's business, social, and cultural existence.

Shows daily at 10am and 4pm.
Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for students, ages 6 to 18, and free for children under 6.
