Ian and I were both crew on the Elissa for 3 years. If you've got a little time, please stop by and take a tour. We are very fortunate to have a tall ship on the island.
Harborside where this ship is located has several great seafood restaurants and other museums along with beautiful old sailing vessel.
The Elissa is the second oldest sailing vessel in the US. Year round, volunteers work on keeping her "ship shape" while quite literally, "learning the ropes" to persevere not only the ship, but the art of sailing a square rigged 19th century vessel. Once a year, the Elissa is more than a museum…
Your ticket to the Seaport Museum give you access to board the Elissa, Galveston's tall ship.
If you're wanting to know a little history about Galveston, start with the 25 minute documentary about The Great Storm at the Seaport Museum. The tall ship, Elissa, is right around the corner.
