KP2X0H Bryan Museum, Galveston island, Gulf of Mexico, Texas, United States of America, North America.


Housed in the 1895 Galveston Orphans' Home, this excellent museum displays documents and artifacts from the Bryan family's collection, covering state and local history. Look out for a Confederate soldier’s violin-shaped shotgun, complete with velvet case; western paintings by Frank Reaugh; and a diorama of miniature soldiers fighting the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto.

After your visit, you can buy a drink ($2 to $6) from the gift shop, and sit out in the grounds.
